Audacity is unaware of what other programs are running so Audacity does not mind, however, if another audio program takes exclusive control of the sound card then the sound card will be unavailable to Audacity and Audacity will be unable to record.
Running multiple audio programs simultaneously on Windows can be very problematic. For Audacity to work correctly it needs to have access to the sound card but depending on the version of Windows, the sound card drivers and how the sound system is configured Audacity may be denied access.
If you set Audacity to use "MME" as the "Host" and "Microsoft Sound Mapper" as the recording device and set your other recording application to use the same, and then configure the Windows Sound System to use the required audio input from your sound card then it may
For the Audacity settings use the Device ToolBar http://manual.audacityteam.org/man/Device_Toolbar
To set the system settings use the Windows Control Panel http://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Mixer ... es#vistacp
To set up the other audio application refer to its documentation.
