Upgrading 2.1.0 to 2.1.2 WHERE? HOW?

So, it says to go here to do the upgrade, all the sections for that are locked.
I did put my current version (2.1.0) in my profile
How do I upgrade? Where do I upgrade…
Is it even possible to upgrade?
What’s up???


That is the link for all three versions of 2.1.2.

New forum posts go into supervisory moderation to keep you from trying to sell us “adult products.”

If you post enough times, that will drop away.


Just use the recommended installer and install over the top of the old version.
If you use FFmpeg (for support of additional audio formats) you will need to update that too.

Download Audacity 2.1.2 from here: http://www.audacityteam.org/download/windows/
Additional information about upgrading: http://manual.audacityteam.org/man/faq_installation_and_plug_ins.html#exe
Information about installing/upgrading FFmpeg here: http://manual.audacityteam.org/man/faq_installation_and_plug_ins.html#ffdown

Does 2.1.2 “know” if it’s trying to access the wrong FFMpeg?


You may find this page I prepared for the upcoming 2.1.3 version Manual useful:

Just don’t try using too much elso of that alpha Manual as it contains new stuff that you won’t have in the released version.


If FFmpeg (lower case “m”) is not compatible with Audacity then Libraries Preferences will say that FFmpeg was not found.

2.1.2 uses the same version of FFmpeg as 2.1.0.
