Sound Problem first with NotePerformer Trial, and now with HSSE/HSO

So, I tried loading Dorico a while back, and suddenly NotePerformer 3 just wouldn’t play in Dorico, AT ALL. I tried resetting Dorico, and even resetting my computer, it did not work. I then tried switching back to HALion and that did not work as well. Now, absolutely NO document loads with sound. I watched a youtube video and tried doing what is says, both NP and HSO show instruments that are loaded, and the playback line is moving when I press play, but no sound. what could be the issue?

Right Now, HALion and NP do not load any sound on my computer

Have you tried deleting the VSTAudioEngine2 folder?
