I have used FSInn since 2009 when I first joined and never had a problem with it until the last time I installed it when I got a new system in 2014.
I bought a refurbished dual core from NewEgg. It was an HP with a Win7 Pro 64-bit OS. All my programs and addons installed flawlessly with the exception of FSInn. Although it appeared to be working fine, like you, I could hear ATC but could not transmit. For my first few flights after that I had to resort to text, which worked just fine.
Then one evening in early 2015 I remembered that for some reason in the past I had disconnected the FSFDT Control Panel that installs with FSCopilot and FSInn. It's the "Traffic Signal" looking panel. I don't recall why I had disconnected it, but I did remember that from that point on I could hear, but not transmit and had to use text for the remainder of the flight.
I have FSFDT set to start anytime my Simulator (FSX and FS2004 both) starts. On a whim I opened the FSFDT Control Panel and was surprised to see that it recognized my system speakers and my headset earphones, but the microphone entry was blank. Pressing the "arrow" beside the blank microphone box gave me a list of options to choose from, one of them being the headset's microphone. Once I selected that I could transmit and receive.
I thought it was just an assignment I would have to do once and forget, but the next time I flew that microphone box was again blank and I had to select my headset microphone again to make it active. It is blank every time I start FSX or FS2004 now, so I always have to remember to assign my microphone in the FSFDT control panel each time.
The correct Control Panel is, again, the traffic signal one that appears in the status bar, not the FSInn Control Panel. Mine is usually found in the "Other Icons" tab of the lower status bar. Or, alternately, you can browse your hard drive and find the folder named "FSFDT" and open the folder within called "Control Panel". Inside you will find FSFDTCP.exe to open the control panel.
Sounds confusing I know and if you get "lost" I can post some screenshots of what to do to see if my problem (and solution) is the same as yours.
