Cannot record PC desktop audio - error 9997

Audacity 3.5.1
Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
Focusrite Scarlett 4i4 Audio Interface

I have always been able to use Audacity to record desktop audio but now I get the error 9997.

Several other forum posts lead to the solution being one or more audio settings different from the others. However, I have checked all of mine and believe they are all set to 24-bit 48k.

I have the host set to WASAPI but have tried switching to both of the other settings and whilst I don’t get the error message they also don’t register the audio on the PC.

Can anyone suggest a solution?
