NVIDIA Broadcast: "Check your microphone connection and restart NVIDIA Broadcast" error when launched

Updated 11/12/2021 05:07 PM
Windows PCs with Microsoft Powertoys installed may see one of the following error messages when launching NVIDIA Broadcast:
 
"Check your microphone connection and restart NVIDIA Broadcast.  If you continue to see this error, try reinstalling the application."
 
"Check your speaker hardware and connection and restart NVIDIA Broadcast.  If you continue to see this error, try reinstalling the application."

A recent update to the 3rd party app Microsoft PowerToys introduced a new feature called "Video Conference Mute".  This setting is enabled by default and may prevent NVIDIA Broadcast from launching correctly.  To resolve this issue:
 
1. Open Microsoft PowerToys and navigate to the Video Conference Mute section from the left column
2. Disable the setting "Enable Video Conference Mute" as shown in the screenshot below.  
 
 
3. Restart NVIDIA Broadcast.
