NDSoundUtils Error 0x80004005

This is a quick blog post, as the solution is quite simply. I’m running Windows 10 and when I used the video capture option of Snap 9, the above error occurred. It turns out this error only occurred when I didn’t run Snap 9 has an administrator.

Here is what I did from my non-administrator account:

  1. I closed Snap 9.
  2. I clicked on the magnifying icon in the bottom left.
  3. I typed in Snap, then right-clicked on the application and selected ‘Run as administrator’.Ashampoo Snap 9 Run as administrator
  4. Typed in the administrator password and then was able to capture video without experiencing the problem.

I almost didn’t write this blog post, but thought someone might appreciate the help.
