Upgrading to 2.0

Help for Audacity 2.x.x on Windows.

ImageThis forum is for Audacity 2.x.x on Windows.
Please state which version of Windows you are using,
and the exact three-section version number of Audacity from "Help menu > About Audacity".

Audacity 1.2.x and 1.3.x are obsolete and no longer supported. If you still have those versions, please upgrade at https://www.audacityteam.org/download/.
The old forums for those versions are now closed, but you can still read the archives of the 1.2.x and 1.3.x forums.

Could you remind me which version of Windows you use.

Steve, This PC never saw 1.2. The first version it saw was 1.3.11, then 1.3.14, then 2.0.0rc1 and finally 2.0.0 official. v1.3.11 was uninstalled once I was happy that 1.3.14 was stable in those areas that I used regularly. v2.0.0 official over-wrote v2.0.0rc1. Is this a significant factor, I wonder? The system runs Win 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit. Having just now renamed audacity.exe in C:Program Files (x86)Audacity to audacity2.exe (as suggested elsewhere on the forum), I have now been able to set file associations for WAV and MP3 to Audacity 2.0.0. I am now in a position to uninstall v1.3.14. Would like me to hold fire on that in order to facilitate further diagnosis of this problem?

Also, I note that there are several forum threads on this "File association" problem now. Can I suggest that you, Gale and I nominate one of them in which to continue our technical dialogue? In that way I will not be interfering in the attempts by the pair of you to solve the problems that the other users are having. And we will not be baffling users (possibly not native English speakers) by our use of technically oriented and sometimes, perhaps, idiomatic English language in their threads.

@PGA I doubt uninstalling Audacity affects this issue because as noted before, the uninstallation does not modify file associations (except for .aup).

If you want to continue this, I suggest viewtopic.php?f=46&t=64286&start=20#p174658 .
