Summary0001265: No app start possible when no audio interface is installed on system
Description

There are some recent reports of crashes on app start when no audio interface is present in the system. If I remember right, audio preview now defaults to be active, so this may add to the issue. I thought this issue was solved a while ago when this first turned up on the forum? As a workaround, I guess it's possible to disable audio preview in config manually?

I don't have a system without sound device to test...

Actually I can see how this could happen. Speculative fix coming up in 2.13.11 which I can backport to 2.12.x if it works.

No testing forthcoming so I've backported this to v2.12.x as ca813d739545b5b8fd7cbd7547f2cb197c222b82

Hmm. Is that a different bug? I just tested this on my windows notebook, after I remembered I already translated a hint towards missing audio hardware a while ago... Actually, missing sound interface fix was already in late 2.11. versions.

When I disable my soundcard driver in Win7, I get this warning on app start, but other than this, no problem. So was there a different condition to catch in 2.12.x?
