Audacity 2.1 does not record on Windows XP7

I just installed the latest version of Audacity but am not able to record any streaming music. The manual does not give a specific procedure to do this. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Please read the pink panel at the top of the page and give us the exact Audacity version you have (all three numbers). There are bogus versions of Audacity out there. The current version is 2.1.1 from Audacity ® | Download for Windows.

Also there is no such operating system as “XP7”.

Not true - there is a whole article about it. Audacity Manual.

If you are on Windows XP, please be aware of the dangers of running an internet-connected XP computer now that Microsoft no longer patches that operating system: Important information for Windows XP users.

Naturally we assume you have copyright holders’ permission to record the streaming music.
