I started x-plane 11 and it said "Sound System Could Not be Initialized."
I tried restarting my laptop, reinstalling the game and updating the sound drivers but there is still no sound.
And this is only for x-plane, my other games and applications all have sound.

I have Windows 10 and have the game on steam.

Fix : reinstall the Realtek drivers using their version found online.

I would recommend verifying the file integrity from Steam. If that still doesn't help, link to a copy of the log.txt from the main X-Plane folder after seeing this issue.

I tried doing that and even installing the game from the website instead of steam. But I still get the error.
