OLD: 1.3.8 doesn't launch after installation on XP machines

This affects some users on Windows XP who downloaded 1.3.8 from us between 16th July 2008 and 24 July 2008 02:00 UTC. When launching Audacity, there may be an error message "incorrect configuration" (typically with code 14001). This was due to a bug in the Microsoft compiler we use, plus additional bugs in Windows DLL search routines. There is a discussion of it in this thread.

Until 24 July, we recommended downloading and running vcredist*.exe from Microsoft. You can still do this, but we now have a replacement 1.3.8 installer and replacement 1.3.8 zip which have a fix for this problem.
