Some applications take over your audio interface when they start and do not allow any other applications to use it. If you run into an issue where no audio plays through your audio plugin host, make sure that exclusive mode for your audio interface is disabled.

 

Disabling the Exclusive Mode options in Windows Sound Preferences prevents audio applications from taking exclusive control of your interface’s driver.

 

Click on the Start button and then type in Change system sounds; click on the Change system sounds control panel item:
