HI,

I was going through the wiki for EAC, this page escpeccially:
http://wiki.slimdevices.com/index.cgi?EACInstall

and I am confused because the wiki describes separate downloads for the FLAC, AccurateRip and EAC: (http://wiki.slimdevices.com/index.cgi?EACBeginners)as well as copying dll's and stuff like that. My download of EAC beta seems to have everything it it already: FLAC and AccurateRIP. Am I missing something? Am I good to go ? By the way, I am using the latest beta of EAC (.99 preBeta-4).

If I need to download separately, I am in trouble because I could not find a download for AccurateRip on the site nor could I be sure that at sourceforge.net I was getting the advised "tools" only version of FLAC.

Thanks,

B

The wiki is for the old version of EAC, which was a real pain to install. The latest is dead easy to install and configure, as you seem to have found out :)

What you might want to do is get the latest version of FLAC, but it's not essential.

Thanks!

Assuming that the latest beta of EAC that I installed does not have the latest FLAC, how would I upgrade the FLAC part of EAC ?

Thanks,

Just download and extract flac somewhere handy for you, and in the EAC compression options point it to the flac.exe file of your latest version (assuming you're on Windows)
