Having problems converting FLAC to mp3
Hi- I'm new and not sure where to post this.  I am trying to get to know foobar2000 as I have heard it is an excellent proram.  I've been following a guide to help me set it up.  I got to the part where it says to go ahead and convert the FLAC.  I right-click and go to convert.  The quide I'm using says the first time I do this it shold ask where LAME.exe is.  However, it does not, so I can't tell it where it is.  It therefore converts the FLAC into... a FLAC.  I have looked all over for some place to add LAME.exe and have been unsuccessful.  Any help would be greatl appreciated.

I would add the lame.exe file to the main program folder:

C:\Program Files (x86)\foobar2000 - for the 64 bit version of Windows

or...

C:\Program Files\foobar2000 -- for 32 bit

The other way.

By the way, foobar2000 doesn't come in 64bit, the installation is always 32bit in "\Program Files (x86)\"

The 64 bit version of Windows creates a second “Program Files” folder for 32bit programs. Anything that goes into "\Program Files (x86)\" is a 32bit application. Foobar2000 is a 32bit program. Hence, its program files are located in that folder. There is no need for this second “Program Files” folder in the 32bit version of Windows. But I had no way of knowing which version the OP was using, so I listed both.

Of course, neither of this is relevant to the topic.

Understood your reply now, sorry working in IT and used to most clients I read your comment in a completely different way that you meant it.

Hi- I'm new and not sure where to post this.
Since you are using foobar2000, its General subforum would have been a logical place. Moved accordingly.
