Fault on Ver. 3.1 Update

Decided to update, but it comes up with this fault as soon as I press record.
“timestamp”: 1643660688,

“exception”: {
“values”: [
“type”: “Error”,
“value”: “Error opening recording device.\nError code: 0 Success.”,
“mechanism”: {
“type”: “runtime_error”,
“handled”: false

Haven’t a clue what to do next, not into programming, but can follow step by step numbered instructions.
I am trying to put something together for my mothers funeral.
I was recording music earlier on the old version and heard a buzz type sound on the quiete segmements, so decided to unplug webcam as that is the only thing that has changed since last recording. Now I dont know if I was correct as it won’t record due to above fault.
Please advise soonest

Subsequent to my previous question and problem, seems the software defaults to MME, which didn’t work but ok on WASAPI.
problem solved.
