Deploying Audacity and LAME using SyAM Management Utilities


Management Utilities can be used to perform a silent installation of the open-source sound editor Audacity on your Windows client systems. The installation can also include the opensource mp3 encoder LAME.

Requirements: Windows target systems must have the SyAM System Client installed and reporting to SyAM System Area Manager. Target systems must be discovered by Management Utility.


Download Audacity for Windows here:

http://audacity.googlecode.com/files/audacity-win-2.0.2.exe


LAME can be downloaded here:

http://lame3.buanzo.com.ar/Lame_v3.99.3_for_Windows.exe



Place the installation files in the directory that is defined as the Default Application Path on the Administration Settings page of Management Utility.


In Management Utility, create a Third Party template to install Audacity. Enter a template name. Select the target platform and authentication template. Enter the path to the network share (this will be filled in already if the default path has been entered in Administration Settings) then click the Find Files button and choose the Audacity installation file from the drop down menu.


Enter the installation parameters:

/SP- /VERYSILENT




If you wish to include LAME in your installation, it can be installed using the same template. Select the target platform and authentication template. Choose the LAME installation executable following the same procedure used for Audacity. Enter the installation parameters, which are the same ones used for Audacity.
