I am getting the above error now and then , while using the IDE - both when running the code and while pressing “ESC” to stop the running code.

How do I solve this situation ? Is this a bug in the engine ? I am using Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (64 bit) with 4 GB RAM

Please help.


Did you try updating the plugins in the SDK?


I used Help->Check For Updates menu to update the SDK. Is there anything else that I have to fix to avoid this error ?


I have exactly the same issue, everything updated.

According to this it looks like its an issue with OpenAL itself.
