Error using 3.1.0

Windows 10
Audacity 3.1.0
I am suddenly receiving an error when I press the “Record” button. D’loaded 3.0.1 and have used it for several recording with no problem. Rebooted computed then d’loaded a new 3.1.0. Problem remains. Occurs with both a new d’load and when adding to a previously recorded session.

Thanks for your help.

It says “invalid sample rate” in the error - did you try setting Audacity to a different sample rate?

Thanks for the suggestion. Yes, I changed the rate to 32k and 48k, problem continued. Uninstalled 3.1.0 (not all componets were removed) and reinstalled from new d’load. Problem continued. Performed a cold start on new installation. Problem continued.

Checked program source. Was set to line-in (no idea how that happened, duhhhh). Reset to Microsoft pnp device, works. Thanks.
