LAME 3.100 won't work with Audacity 2.2.1
I downloaded Audacity_Portable_LAME_plugin_3.100.paf.exe and tried to use it with Audacity. But I got the error message that lame_enc.dll v3.100 is not compatible with Audacity 2.2.1.
I tried it out here and it's working without issue. Please post a note in the Audio and Video Support forums with the complete details including OS version and bit depth, full install path, new vs upgrade, etc.

The LAME plugin has been switched to 3.99.3 since that's the version recommended by the Audacity folks.
