Downloaded the new Audacity twice after a Windows update made my last version not work. Now the windows which allow me to choose my "recording device" and "recording channels" are completely blank, offering no options and therefore I am unable to record.

Look in the Windows Sound Control Panel. Do you see recording and playback devices enabled? What devices are enabled?
