Windows 7 Pro x64

I tried VLC player using its create audio stream wizard. It doesn't appear to do anything on any computer. I hit create stream, the wizard closes, and VLC just sits there like dumb to whatever I did in the wizard.

Also tried creating a windows shortcut using this command:

On the Laptop:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe" dshow:// :dshow-adev="Stereo Mix (Realtek High Defini" :dshow-caching=200 --sout "#transcode{vcodec=none,acodec=mp3,ab=320,channels =2,samplerate=44100}:http{dst=:8079/st.mp3}"

VLC just crashes. But at least now Windows Firewall asked to give VLC permission, progress I guess.

On the Desktop:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe" dshow:// :dshow-adev=""What U Hear" (Creative SB X-Fi" :dshow-caching=200 --sout "#transcode{vcodec=none,acodec=mp3,ab=320,channels =2,samplerate=44100}:http{dst=:8079/st.mp3}"

VLC says something like invalid sound device

To see if anything has happened while the laptops VLC player was sitting dumb when it was supposed to be doing something, I connected the desktop VLC to the laptops supposed streaming address, and the Desktop VLC crashes.

The only thing VLC seems to be good for is crashing. Even when following guides exactly, on both computers.
