Audacity 2.0.5 always resets settings

Every time I close Audacity, the "Portable Settings" folder becomes empty and all the settings reset to default.
Update1: I relaunched the PortableApps.com platform, and now it looks like Audacity saves settings properly. When I close Audacity, the "Portable Settings" folder disappears (not just becomes empty, like it did before) and then on the next launch all the settings are back. Still, I think the problem exists in the case when you just fresh-installed Audacity and haven't relaunched the platform yet.

reset?

Audacity has its settings folder moved between the /Data folder (storage) amd the /App/Audacity (while its running). Thats why the settings disappear and reappear.

I understand that. I was more concerned about the fact that the settings kept resetting to defaults every time I relaunched Audacity. But after restarting the PortableApps Platform that problem had gone away, now Audacity keeps my settings even if I close it.

good

Its good that it works now.
But all apps from this site should work with or without the platform.
