Thanks for the prompt responce,
I checked that early on. I had an existing "allways allow" for my server. I tried removing it and adding another instance. No luck

try adding the directory that contains your html and swf.
Yeah, I did that after thoroughly reading the page
Still no luck. As I was doing that I noticed that I didnt get the "sandbox" message with the setting tab that would take you to the FP global setting page unless I tried to open the swf from windows explorer. Opening from Flash it just give the "error connecting to url..." message. Anyway I did add the local folder location that contains all the related project files. Also when I right click and "open with" I am only give the option to open with Flash Player 8.0 r22. I cant find the new Player that I just reinstalled (after a restart). Not even with a windows search. However if I verify my version I get 10,1,53,64 debug yes.
Just to verify that something in flash could connect to the internet my old ftp login for "open from site" can connect. It has to be the player, right?
it's probably the player and it's probably a security sandbox issue. but it could be anything from a local firewall to your webserver.
In case anyone else stumbles on a similar situation...
I was only able to solve this by rolling my machine back to a previous system backup. Luckily I do weekly system backups.
Im sure it had to do with the flash player upgrade since that is the only change I made to my system.
