Unable to set clip. GDI Status: "GenericError"

Since I switch between audio hardwares often, I get this error a lot and I know how to fix it, thanks to past community posts.
The problem here is the error window itself, why can't I just close it? it keeps popping back up when I click on ''ok'' which is my only option, forcing me to shut down After Effects and re-run it. Then I have to adjust my audio hardware preferences before starting anything. Would be real nice to be able to do this without having to shut the program down completely.

Sorry to hear about the issue, ekerbatu.

Try this - Go to your audio setting in Edit > Preferences > Audio Hardware and change your "Default Output" to something else.

Let us know if it helps.

Note: Moving this thread from Bugs to Discussions for troubleshooting.

 

Thanks,

Thanks for the reply.
As I said I know how to fix the issue so it doesn't happen again. I just can't do what you have said before I shut After Effects down from task manager because the error window pops right back up when i click ok to close it, making me unable to click anywhere else on After effects.
