I am using Media Vision's Proaudio Studio 16 card. When I
start my Win95, the mic becomes active. Therfore, if I run any other application such as Netmeeting, it says that some other application is using the mic.
I could not figure out why this is happening.
Any clue?

Thanks,

What other applications are you running.  You can press CTRL ALT DEL once to get the tasklist and see.  Perhaps there is a TSR running that utilizes the mic, such as a voice command program.

If you disable other programs running that use the mic, it should start working.

Let me know what you find,

Get the volume control window up (double click speaker icon), select Options, Properties. If there is a 'mic' listed, but not checked, check it, and then do the same with Recording controls. Make sure the mic is not selected for recording (choose CD or line), and that the mic is set to 'mute' for playback.

I will check as suggested and then post the findings.

I have this problem on two systems. One of them. I loaded the Win95 from scatch with no other software except DOS, Win3.1, Win95 and Proaudio Setup.
