Opening this score (uploaded to musescore) causes a crash on open. Maybe due to odd time signatures?

Opening this in musescore is causing a crash. Does anyone know how to work around this? I've been working on this score for the better part of the last week and I'm worried I'll have to restart everything


Workaround No Yes

I figured out a workaround!
I went into the document and removed the whole first line, the alto sax, and that seemed to have done the trick. I'm pretty sure what's causing the error is the two 5/8 measures that I have in my score, as now that I go back in it looks like musescore added an extra 3 beats at the end of the last 5/8 measure, but I'm not a programmer, so maybe not.
No idea why this occurs, but I opened the .mscx file in Note Pad, then erased everything from to to remove the whole first line.
I'll have to re-write that part, but at least now I have the majority of my work back.

Unfortunately it seems your score has been marked private or otherwise not available. Can you please simply attach it here?

There are a handful of known situations that can cause crashes opening files in 3.6. The most common is a start reoeat within a file saved in continuous view, but this wouldn't have responded to your workaround. Another possibility is a clef change in the last measure, just because the final barline. You wouldn't normally see it but it would show in the MSCX file. Deleting just that should work. But if can access your file, then we can say better.
