[solved] Where did my sounds disappear?

So I was trying to add a short death theme to the behaviour that displays death animation after HP drops to 0, I ran the project and there was no sounds, no music. Absolutely nothing. I thought I just made a bug somewhere and tried to fix it but couldn't figure what's the problem. Then I tried other Stencyl games and kits and noticed that they don't have sounds or music either. I can listen to the songs and sounds just fine in the sounds library, but they don't play in games.

I gave the game project to my friend via StencylForge, and when she downloaded it, she says the sounds are working just fine. Is there something wrong in my StencylWorks or why I can't hear any sounds or songs in any games or kits played in it? I can hear all other browser, computer, videogame sounds and musics like normal but there is no sounds playing in any projects I am running in Stencyl.

Also I can't export or publish the game for some reason. When publishing it tells me to check my internet connection and when exporting to .swf it only says "Could not write"

Here is the log in case it might help.

Sorry I can't download your logs while at work, but I had a few thoughts.

Do you have full permissions to write to the directory that SW is in or is using? Not having that could cause it issues with writing to the disk.

When playing other flash-based games (on other sites, such as Kongregate), do you hear sounds and music as you should? If not, it may be that you've managed to mute or reduce the volume of the Flash Player somehow, perhaps via the Volume Control (assuming a Windows OS, anyway).

Being only one using this computer and having full rights I don't understand why it can't write. It Doesn't let it write it anywhere. No desktop, no usb stick.

Also I tried other flash games with my browser and played Balls in Space here in Stencyl's site, and I hear all the music and songs just fine. I can hear everything besides sounds in projects being run in StencylWorks.

Edit: now I gave the game to my another friend and he says the songs work just fine. I have no idea what the problem is, is there something wrong in my StencylWorks?

I think someone will need to look at your logs to find the answer. This isn't something I can do right now (although I downloaded in them in case I have time to peruse them).

What is your operating system and install path for Stencylworks?

Erhm, I got back from work and turned on the computer and StencylWorks, and the sounds have returned. So I guess this was solved, I just wonder what caused the sounds to disappear in the first place.

I moved the StencylWorks wolder to C:\ and now it lets me export too.
