"How to record" tutorial freezes for Audio Studio 13

I'm working with Sound Forge Audio Studio 13 on Windows. Going through the tutorials and the most important one, "how to record", freezes after hitting the record button. Step 2 of 3, "click the record button to open the record dialogue", which i do, but no record dialogue opens and the "next" button on the tutorial doesnt engage. So i cant proceed with the tutorial.

Also, i dont see this covered in the tutorial titles, i want to multi track record. Nothing fancy. Just putting down one track at a time. And listening to playback while recording the next track. Any advice or links to better tutorials would be much appreciated.

Welcome to the Magix Sound Forge users forum @Clinton-Milgrom..

I am not familiar with the tutorials .. or recording with AS (Audio Studio). But in any case, Sound Forge is an 'editing' application and not suited for overdub work. See this post:

I don't have Audio Studio but with Sound Forge Pro 10 to 14 (the Pro version of AS), I haven't been aware or have ever heard/read that playback/record at the same time was ever an option.

It sounds like I have the wrong program for my needs. Thank you all for the feedback.
