I downloaded Audacity 2.1.2, Line6 UX2, and Windows 10 a long time ago. I had them working together perfectly as recently as February 2016. I’m not sure what changed, but now recording is not working properly.
The Windows 10 setup: Playback - ux2 (default) and speakers enabled. Recording - ux2 disabled, microphone (default) and realtek enabled
The Audacity setup: Windows WASAPI, Mic: Microphone (Realtek), Speakers (ux2)
This setup allows me to open Audacity, but does not record through the ux2. Instead, recording is done through the laptop mic.
If I change the Windows 10 setup so that the Recording: ux2 is enabled, then Audacity brings this error message: “Could not find any audio devices.”
I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled the UX2 device driver. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled Audacity.
I see some forum posts that may recommend using the Nightly Build version of Audacity. Is this your recommendation, or is there a better solution?

Yes, use the latest Windows Nightly Build if you accept it is not a released version and may have bugs. The behaviour you see in 2.1.2 is expected. As soon as you connect an incompatible device, you won’t be able to play or record using any devices.
The nightly build won’t fix UX2 if UX2 is incompatible. It will just “error opening device” instead, but other devices will work.
Thank you all for your help! I am recording again.
I updated the device driver from 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52.
In Windows playback, I enabled ux2 (at 48000), and in Windows record, I enabled ux2 (to 48000).
In Audacity, I set it to MME, Digital Audio Interface, 2 (Stereo), Speakers (Line 6). This solved all issues.
