ASIO

Post by Summers » Mon May 23, 2022 7:06 pm

Quick question. I have completed a build of Audacity which includes ASIO. I have a pre-existing install of Audacity. Can I copy the binaries from my build (win\Release) to the previous install (Program Files (x86)\Audacity) or must I build an installer and do a fresh install?
Thank you!

You may be able to do that and then just not tell anybody, but the way I understand it, compiling gives you One (1) instance of Audacity that you are absolutely not allowed to copy or share with anybody else.

Note that Program Files (X86) is for 32-bit builds and Program Files is for 64-bit builds.

Also, there are various .dll files and other files and subdirectories that need to be in the same directory.

For me, I just create a shortcut pointing to the build directory. :D
