I’m running Audacity 1.3.9 (Unicode) under Windows XP SP3 on a hand-me-down laptop.
I’m trying to use Audacity to export to an MP3 file but keep getting this message:
“Could not open MP3 encoding library!”
I’ve tried downloading various versions of the lame_enc.dll file and then manually selecting them in Audacity when I attempt the export operation, but to no avail.
I’ve read numerous messages in the Audacity forums from others who over the years who have run into the same problem, but I’m having trouble understanding much of what has been posted. I’m disabled by chronic health problems that have impaired my cognitive skills and I also suffer from intermittent seizures that impair my memory.
I’d be grateful for some help in troubleshooting this problem.
