I have windows 10 and just downloaded Audacity 2.1.2. After running the exe file, I tried to open the program using the icon. Nothing Happens - any issues that are known about this problem?
Could be bad audio device drivers. Did you upgrade to Windows 10 over previous Windows?
Try these links:
Thanks Gale. Yes I did upgrade from prior windows version. I did a restart of computer today and it opens now, although it was quite slow in opening. I will try to actually use it later.
It may be an idea when you have time to use the second link I posted to see if you can obtain new audio drivers for Windows 10 from your computer or motherboard manufacturer.
Audacity can be slow launching. That is “normal” on Windows.
