I can select my microphone but I have no input sound in VPilot

I don't really know what is going on, but just a couple of thoughts based on reading the vPilot Tips, Tricks, FAQ and Troubleshooting Guide:



Q: Windows sees my microphone/headset just fine, but vPilot does not. How come?
A: It appears that you are not running vPilot as an administrator. Try doing that.


Q: I'm suddenly getting an Unhandled exception message for some reason. It says UnspecifiedError calling waveInOpen. Any ideas?
A: Though not something specifically related to vPilot, it seems to be caused by a recent Windows 10 update. Go to Windows Microphone Privacy Settings and turn On the option to Allow apps to access your microphone.


Q: I cannot hear anyone. Any ideas?
A: You should check your audio settings both in vPilot and in the sim. Most common issues include:

  • Not setting your preferred audio receive device in vPilot (Settings > Audio)
  • Not ensuring your radios are selected/powered up in the sim (hint: if you're connected and both frequencies are shown as gray, none are blue, you do not have power to your radios (or are not actually connected to the network))
  • Not running vPilot as an Administrator


Q: OK, I checked all of that, but I still cannot hear anyone. Any other ideas?
A: There have been a number of reports that people with ASUS Sonic Studio active are having an issue where voice transmits just fine, but members (pilots and ATC alike) cannot receive any audio.  The solution seems to be to disable the Sonic Studio Virtual Mixer (or some have simply deleted the program) and reboot your computer.



Though you didn't say anything about an UnspecifiedError, I wonder about you guys checking Windows Microphone Privacy Settings and making sure the option to Allow apps to access your microphone is On.
