|Summary||0029948: Sound Editor: Resources not opening within the workspace for a small number of users|
- A few tickets have come through whereby users are unable to open sounds within the workspace. We have not been able to reproduce the issue here, but it seems like sounds play as expected in-game, and can be dragged from outside the IDE, into the resource tree as expected.
- Important to note that one of the users is able to open a sound once, but cannot subsequent times.
- Double clicking a sound from the resource tree, should open a sound window within the workspace
|Additional Information||It is just a theory at the minute, but we wonder if the users have AV installed on their system, that is blocking the file from being opened and used. I have asked the customers to confirm if they are using any AV.|

Note: This should allow the Sound Editor to appear regardless of the FFmpegWrapper and dependencies are found or not, but will not allow sound playback.
It'll warn the user that there could be a bad install or overzealous virus scanner.
For reference, the required DLLs are as follows.
Should all be in your GMS2 installation folder (if any of these are missing and you can't restore them - e.g, from an antivirus quarantine - you will need to reinstall GMS2):
FFmpegWrapper.dll (Made by YoYo)
avcodec-58.dll (Made by FFmpeg - v4.0.2)
avformat-58.dll (Made by FFmpeg - v4.0.2)
avutil-56.dll (Made by FFmpeg - v4.0.2)
swresample-3.dll (Made by FFmpeg - v4.0.2)
Should be in your Windows\System32 folder:
MSVCP140.dll (Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Runtime - if this is missing install vc_redist.x64.exe from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=52685 )
VCRUNTIME140.dll (Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Runtime - as above)
Message is now in, so Closing. Note that it has a typo with it's/its (bugged separately). Appears only once per IDE session.
Note that the 100% repro above is for the "use case" of deliberately sabotaging your install by renaming/deleting ffmepgwrapper.dll - we have not yet fully determined why this issue affects some customers.
