Default Waves Audio Device reverts from selection

Sorry if this is a rookie question. I've been a Mac PT user for a long time but just installed Pro Tools on my windows machine at home. Under the Setup / Playback engine, I select Windows audio device, and then my stock sound card.
I hit save, yes it'll close and re-open...
But when it opens back up it reverts back to the SPDIF output.

Default Re: Waves Audio Device reverts from selection

There's a discussion on here about PT and Windows system sounds don't like to share the audio device or sound card unlike core audio in a Mac. If you have HDX or another audio device try that instead.

I figured it out. I had to change all system sounds to the monitor and the the ASIO4ALL.v2 was able to be targeted in the setup / playback device menu. Then the hardware setup window opened and allowed me to select the stock headphone jack.

This system is really only for quick emergency revisions and creating postings from sessions mixed at the studio.
