Story Topic:


The [Language] section in the Launcher.ini still contains Default=en, breaking the language switching - english is persistent.

Also, is it possible to portablize the plugin settings? Audacity per default looks for locally installed vst plugins and writes that info to the plugins.cfg. If there are entries for plugins that lie on the usb drive the drive letter is not updated.Sorry, forget that. I made the entries manually, so that would normally not occur.
But maybe consider an entry in the audacity.cfg in DefaultData to prevent the vst scan - as the entries in plugin.cfg are mostly useless if used portable. For local use, one could manually start a scan.
