    Error, could not open Capture Device

    I'm trying to setup my microphone through an external sound card but when I go to capture under tools - options and choose my sound card then try voice activation detection it gives me the message "Error, could not open Capture Device". I'm getting microphone input from my soundcard's software so it's not my hardware. Here's some more info:

    Client version: 3.1.10
    sound card: Focusrite Forte
    OS: WIndows 10
    All my drivers are up to date.
    Capture Settings: capture mode-automatically use best mode, capture device-Line In (Forte)
    No capture or playback profile, just default

    Can you show us a client log?

    The latest Windows update requires that access to your microphone is enabled.

    These 2 settings must be enabled:
    • Microphone access for this device
    • Allow apps to access your microphone

    The settings can be found under Settings -> Privacy -> Microphone (left side)
    You can also press Windows key + R and type in ms-settings:privacy-microphone to reach that setting.
    When sending me private messages: Please make sure to include reference link to your forum thread or post.
