This plugin finally fixed WASAPI seek issues with my USB audio interface.

But to install, just unpack to components directory is so much easier. It would be better if this component was uploaded as a zip to begin with.

How is unpacking a zip "so much easier" than double-clicking a file?

It's not. I would have to load Foobar2000 to import the component.

I don't use the user-components folder. I can't be bothered. It's neater to put everything in components which is what I do. Since I went there to rename the old foo_out_wasapi for backup (which I would still do if I was using the user-components folder), I just tried renaming the wasapi 3 beta to zip to see if it could be unpacked, which it could, so I then just copied it over. Easy peasy.

I’m confused, but anyway…

As Peter implied, shouldn’t you just be able to double-click on foo_out_wasapi.fb2k-component from Explorer and have foobar2000 install it automatically? Otherwise, I suspect something is amiss in your file associations.

Portable foobar2000. Portable everything possible for that matter.
