Problem with recording audio files

Hey everyone!

I experience problems with recording audios for my cards on the desktop (Windows 10) version of Anki. As soon as I hit the recording button a window appears (pasted below), and the audio recording continues to run in the background, however, when I close the error window and want to save the audio recording, another error message pops up (pasted also below).

I have restarted the app, rebooted the PC, pressed the shift key while starting the app, removed all add-ons, reinstalled the app and then also installed the newest version after finding out that there is one. None of those solved the problem.

Here is the report:

An error occurred. Please use Tools > Check Database to see if that fixes the problem.
