Hello. This problem usually happens when the web service is renamed. This causes the location to be mis located. Do not worry. The problem can be fixed. Here are two solution methods which can help you out.

Change your policy file, that might help solve the issue. Follow this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<access-policy>
  <cross-domain-access>
    <policy>
      <allow-from http-request-headers="*" http-methods="*">      
        <domain uri="http://*" />
        <domain uri="https://*" />
      </allow-from>      
      <grant-to>      
        <resource path="/" include-subpaths="true" />
      </grant-to>
    </policy>
  </cross-domain-access>
</access-policy

 

The problem will be solved. If not, then try clearing your Temporary Internet files and your browser cache. If it is still not working, then you should contact a network and IT expert near your area.

Best of luck with you

You encounter this error because of changing some configuration like the version of the policy or when you use a customized client accesspolicy.xml file. If you have a back up of old policy then use or restore it but if don’t have, you may try to change your clientaccesspolicy.xml to this one.

After changing, you may still encounter this error, try to clear and restart the editor and clear your browser's cache. 

This will solve your problem.
