SO4 and VLC do not want to work when the other is running - on Win10

Since upgrading last year from SO3 to SO4, my VLC and Presonus hate one another. To get either to play audio, I have to exit the other.
When SO4 is running, VLC shows the video, but the audio is dead. I have to Quit SO4, then VLC is happy and plays fine.
I stumbled upon a suggested solution (to remove VLC from registry and reinstall) which did not work. Any suggestions, please?

Go into the Studio One settings and check, "release audio device in background".

What audio interface/soundcard do you use?

Yes, thanks ryanm1 - I have done that now a while ago, but now another problem arises:

When checked SO4 does not release the mouse, and when clicking anywhere else on the screen stops the transport from playing; when unchecked the problem with the mouse ceases, but then VLC does not work.

amuniversum  What audio interface/soundcard do you use?

External Steinberg unit (running on ASIA of course).
