The Reset method resets the audio stream.


Return Value

If the method succeeds, it returns S_OK. If the method succeeds and the stream was already reset, the method returns S_FALSE. If it fails, possible return codes include, but are not limited to, the values shown in the following table.

Return code Description
AUDCLNT_E_NOT_INITIALIZED The audio stream has not been successfully initialized.
AUDCLNT_E_NOT_STOPPED The audio stream was not stopped at the time the call was made.
AUDCLNT_E_BUFFER_OPERATION_PENDING The client is currently writing to or reading from the buffer.
AUDCLNT_E_SERVICE_NOT_RUNNING The Windows audio service is not running.


This method requires prior initialization of the IAudioClient interface. All calls to this method will fail with the error AUDCLNT_E_NOT_INITIALIZED until the client initializes the audio stream by successfully calling the IAudioClient::Initialize method.

Reset is a control method that the client calls to reset a stopped audio stream. Resetting the stream flushes all pending data and resets the audio clock stream position to 0. This method fails if it is called on a stream that is not stopped.
