Is it possible to make a minimal-intervention package of audio files etc that will launch right into foobar2k/foo_abx in such a way that your mother will be able to install it? And so chances of "cheating" are reduced?

Only unmodified installers can be redistributed; redistribution of foobar2000 binaries in any other form is not permitted.


and you can't stop people cheating with foo_abx. besides, results on their own mean nothing. you'll only be taken seriously if other people can re-produce your findings.

Thank you for replying.

Demanding that the user installs a regular foobar2k is ok. Demanding that he finds the foo_abx.dll and drops it into the right folder is too high a threshold for my mother. Is there no fix for this that is within the license?

Is there some way to script/command-line control foobar2k into opening a given set of files directly into the ABX comparator? Hiding the regular foobar2k window?

I was not hoping to stop people from cheating, only making it a little more cumbersome.

I do believe that making these tools more accessible will further the understanding and respect for blind testing.
