Running Audacity 2.4 on Windows 7. On start of the program I get the error message: “Could not find any audio device. You will not be able to play or record audio.” The Audio Host and Recording Device drop down menus are blank. If I go to Preferences–> Devices, all of the options there are also blank.
I have gone to the Windows Control Panel–>Sound and played around with all of the Recording and Playback settings there. My Reaktek audio drivers are up to date. I have uninstalled a recent audio/video program (HD Video Converter Factory Pro). I have re-installed Audacity 2.4.
NOTHING HAS SOLVED THE PROBLEM! I still cannot play or record audio in Audacity!
Does anyone have a clue as to why this is happening? Any advice as to how to resolve this issue is appreciated.
