It just worked for me 3 days ago under Windows 10 creator’s update. I’m
using a SoundBlaster Omni USB soundcard.

Interestingly, some users have reported that it
still works for them so now I'm just confused.

It seems that the Virtual Recorder utility is no
longer working in Windows 10. Probably due to incompatibilities, the audio virtual capture device is causing FFmpeg to completely freeze
up. That's what I get for not testing more often. I have no idea
how long the problem has existed so it could go back to the Anniversary
edition. Unfortunately, there's not much I can do about this until or
unless the developer updates the DLL. Recording via the sound
card/hardware audio devices still seems to work as expected, but the ability
to record anything playing through the sound card is broken. You can
still use your sound card's
"Stereo Mix"/"What You Hear"
option if it has that capability to
achieve similar results, but the primary reason for creating Virtual Recorder
was for cards especially on laptops that do not have that feature. My
apologies. I will of course post a fix if the DLL is ever updated, but
considering that the last release was made three years ago, I won't be holding
