Keep getting "error opening sound device"

After a long absence, I opened Audacity to record a VO audition. Unfortunately, the new version 2.2.2 keeps giving me “error opening sound device.” I have looked to see if my Icicle needs an update but my computer keeps telling me it’s updated as is. Looked at the sound card and that seems to be okay and the rate is 48000. Although I did choose 44100; that didn’t correct the issue. I think the problem is with the new Audacity version. The last time I used the program it was 2.x.x for Windows and it worked fine. I am using Windows 10. I’d really appreciate some help, can’t keep losing VO opportunities. Thank you.

The current version is Audacity 2.3.0, and there is due to be a new release (Audacity 2.3.1) later this month.
The current version is available via the Audacity website: Audacity ® | Downloads

More likely to do with Windows updates. See this post: https://forum.audacityteam.org/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=100117
