CreateExport: Failed to load Outer for resource 'AssetImportData': MetaSoundSource

I’m getting the following errors.

I’ve tried deleting everything in the following directory:
*%userprofile%\AppData\Local\UnrealEngine*

I’ve tried deleting everything in the project’s Intermediate and Saved directories.

I’ve tried disabling and enabling MetaSound.

The files must have somehow gotten corrupted.
I recreated the MetaSoundSource files and backed them up again.

Update:
The issue is still happening every time I restart the project.
If I copy the backup files the audio works just fine until I restart the project.

Update:
I’ve found a workaround where I’m playing the audio for walking using Blueprint instead of animations.
I still get errors when the project loads but it’ll have to do for now.

I get the same issue, on project load, and when test cooking.

My issue appears to stem from using ConstructorHelpers::FClassFinder in my GameMode CPP to set my default pawn. My pawn has a play sound node in the blueprint, and is calling a MetaSound. It would seem that there is an order of operations issue, perhaps before MetaSound is properly loaded.

After much testing it appears ONLY when I have a sound call in the blueprint with a MetaSound attached, works perfectly with an old soundcue. I even made a different player pawn, and attached a MetaSound play sound call to it and receive the same issue.
