Recognising LAME MP3 encoder for Audacity

I also am having problems with Ver 2.0.3
System - win 7 pro 64 bit, i5 processor.
I have followed steps detailed in
Using the link for version 3.99.3 for windows, the exe installs fine but windows reports version as and Audacity version 2.0.3 does not recognize it as valid.
However Audacity version 2.0.0 does recognize it as valid, mp3 export no problem, and Audacity 2.0.0 reports the version as 3.99.3.
Thanks to all how work on this project.

Please always start a new topic even if the issue appears to be the same as someone else’s (it almost never is the same in each and every detail, and it is too complicated answering two people in one topic).

I started a new topic for you.

Do you mean you have 2.0.0 on another computer? If 2.0.0 recognises that lame_enc.dll then there should be no reason that 2.0.3 does not do so (that I can think of).

Have you tried the Troubleshooting on ?

If you still have a problem in 2.0.3 please post Help > Show Log… from Audacity.
