Error code in Audacity

Good morning everyone,
when I try to record via Audacity it gives me an error message (attached). Tried several times to delete the program and reinstall it, but to no avail. Can you help me?
Thank you

Sometimes switching to WASAPI can fix this this. Sometimes rebooting can fix this.

What is WASAPI? Another software?
