Default Tutorial 3 -- unknown error - 01-28-2007, 11:14 AM

As soon as I reach the step "press play to see what this world does", I press "play" and receive a message that "an unknown error has occurred".
Any thoughts? I am about to start Alice next week in my half-year course, am trying to learn it quickly, and something like this is not helping!!!
Thanx,
Ira

Ira, this looks like a sound card issue. Does your machine have a functional sound card? Are you using the latest drivers?

Someone had much the same problem last fall - never did report if it got fixed or not - see the thread http://www.alice.org/community/showt...ighlight=sound .

Personally still don't have any new ideas - would definitely try to see if the sound file will run outside of Alice.

For months, ever since I installed service pack 2, my sound works for some things, but not others. I can't figure out how that's possible, and just live with it....but definitely the sound is an issue.
I will try Alice on a different computer and see how that tutorial goes and post the results.

Thanks so much for the quick advice,
Ira
