[False Alarm] QB 8.10 still no working metronome

Hello qbuddies,
the metronome still doesn’t work as expected.

Only the midi option works.

The beeps and audio option are silent yet.
I started in maintenance mode and trashed my preferences completely too. Both had no effect.
I tried it with new and old projects - no difference.

What is going on?

False alarm!
Ooops. The click field in the VST Connections was disabled. Dunno how I did it.
But for the prove of my dumbness I will leave it here.
