im not really sure about this but im the kind of guy who rarely restarts his computer (i leave mine on 24/7) but i restarted my computer and voila now audacity is working again… strange welp its working again so i solved it


Thanks for telling us you had solved the problem.

You should reboot frequently, especially on older versions of Windows.

If you are using any USB audio devices that could be the reason. USB devices can “lock up” and cease to respond. Rebooting is the answer.
