32 G RAM
Sound Realtek HD Universal & Nahimic Driver
All drivers are latest updates.
Windows is laterst update
So, what to do
Read the FAQ, but, I have all the latest drivers, and they are working with all other software, sound/video editors and so on.
Do you have any “virtual” audio devices installed? If so, try temporarily removing them.
It does not look that way
Where do you see “Game Capture”?
Nahimic mirroring device ?
I didn’t, but “Elgato Game Capture” is the only time that I’ve seen an Elgato device listed.
What happens if you disable that device?
Disabled taskmanager, no change.
There’s clearly something about your setup that PortAudio does not like, but I don’t know what it is. It doesn’t help that I don’t speak Swedish.
You could try Audacity 2.3.3 (it uses an older version of PortAudio)
It’s available here: https://www.fosshub.com/Audacity-old.html
Well, ok, have to check this later, out for a business trip for a few weeks, I’ll be back.
