Note that WASAPI loopback doesn’t exist on XP so you’ll have to try one of the other methods. The choices you have depend on your drivers and in some cases Audacity may not work and you may need to use a different recording application. Total Recorder has it’s own “virtual driver” so it’s supposed to be foolproof. (Total Recorder is not free, and I don’t own it.)
