#512 Has been happening for more and more users lately, we have people who can't even open the software on their machines. I provided them with a build with portaudio removed and their issues were gone.
Portaudio was always hard to set up on windows for me, and I find SDL works every time. If WASAPI support is required, I think we should focus on libsoundio, even though that would mean dropping support for windows XP. ASIO is also a planned feature for libsoundio: andrewrk/libsoundio#23
Anyways, in conclusion, Portaudio causes more problems than benfits on windows, and I think it should be disabled.
