Flock won't open anymore (notifications flash but program doesn't open) PC

Hello, I’m trying to get set up on a PC.

I’ve had a lot of trouble with having the computer “see” the microphone (Dell support identified that the MaxxAudio program was not working properly. hopefully this is resolved.)

Earlier today the computer asked if Flock could send me notifications. I said yes.
Since that time, Flock won’t open. does not appear in task manager, does not open, when I restart the computer and try to open Flock, several notifications flash, but the program window doesn’t open.

I have uninstalled flock and installed again.

Any thoughts?


Hi Peggy

Thanks for the info. I’ll try to help.

In other cases where Flock does not open it usually needs a fresh install. So do the same as you’ve done by uninstalling Flock and then you also need to delete a folder. Here’s more info on how to do that.

I assume you were using ASIO4ALL rather than Windows Audio device. Doing the complete uninstall will delete any settings you’ve done with ASIO4ALL. So you’ll need to setup ASIO4ALL again. Here’s a post which explains who does and doesn’t need to setup ASIO4ALL along with instructions on how to do it.

In the above post are also some tips for “finding” a mic. The second video has troubleshooting tips and at the end of the article are some strategies for how to find the mic and headphones.


Thank you, deleting the folder did the trick for being able to reinstall & open. Getting close!
