Everytime I set up Audacity and get ready to record, when I push the record button, it crashes. I have to close it down and then set it up again, and then it works. I am on Windows 10 and use the latest edition.

A little box opens that says: Error opening recording device. Error Code 0 Success.
Then a larger box says: Debug report “Audacity.”
It refers to files the report contains and instructs me to push okay to send the report. It never fixes the problem. I have uninstalled and re-installed Audacity but it did not fix the problem.

Thank you,

Which version of Audacity? (Look in “Help > About Audacity”)

Does it crash (disappear altogether), or freeze (remains on screen but does not respond)?

When does that happen?
