No sound in preview or export?

Hi. I was happily editing in Hitfilm Express, no issues, when my sound completely went. Every other program on my Windows 10 Computer worked, no issues. I tried changing the output along with restarting hitfilm express, no luck. I shall add, the trimmer worked fine. The audio meters too.

Things I've tried:
-Exporting the video
I did try exporting the video to see whether it was a hitfilm related issue, or just one of the files.
I didn't have any sound in the export, sadly.

-Update Hitfilm Express
I'm already on the latest version (16.1.11108.7206).

Things I'll do now, yet to do:
-Restart my main machine
Huge inconvenience, despite having an SSD and it taking seconds, hitfilm should NOT be doing this.

-Resinstall Hitfilm Express
Ok, no thanks. If this is what I have to do I must say goodbye to Hitfilm.

Also, before anyone says its a computer related issue, here are my specs:
AMD Ryzen 3 3100 4-Core Processor 3.60 GHz
16.0 GB RAM

So, not a low-spec machine.


I've restarted my computer, no luck.
