With tips taken from http://forum.audacityteam.org/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=6980 and basic command line, I created a batch file that installs both version 2.0.5 AND LAME mp3 encoding library since this was an upgrade to a version earlier than 1.3.6.... I zipped the batch file and the two installation executables to upload to the software as inventoried and used the "configure manually" distribution option to simply "audacity.bat" (no quotes), deleting downloaded files. This was pretty simple & very smooth. The only "difficulty" was when this became an upgrade...
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR UPGRADES: Versions older than 1.3.x will require separate removal... (I created an uninstaller script using the KACE Un-installer Wizard that removed ONLY a particular version of the program using the entries found in the registry uninstall string with the /VERYSILENT parameter). Here's the Batch file:
REM REM need to check for previous versions in HKLM\Software\....
REM Versions older than 1.3.x will require separate removal...
REM If the previous version was 1.3.x, uninstall 1.3 before installing the current 2.x version. REM Run uninstall string with /VERYSILENT parameter
REM OR run QuietUninstallString before running installation
REM After uninstalling 1.3, any extra plug-ins you added to that version will remain, & can move them to "Plug-Ins" folder of the new installation. REM installation command for version 2.0.5:
start /wait audacity-win-2.0.5.exe /VERYSILENT /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES /NORESTART /SP- /MERGETASKS="!desktopicon"
REM If upgrading from Audacity 1.3.6 or earlier, must also update to latest LAME mp3 encoding library:
start /wait Lame_v3.99.3_for_Windows.exe /Silent
