MuseScore crashes while importing MusicXML file that was exported by Score Perfect 6

• Sep 15, 2014 - 18:18


today I tried MuseScore and I wonder if I can import MusicXML (version 1.1) created by ScorePerfect 6. Unfortunately, MuseScore crashes if I try to import such a file in most times. First I tried version 1.3, but also the newest nightly build version crashes. The XML parser of the nightly build version remarks some errors, but if I correct the XML code by hand (I know what I do, I am a devoloper too) MuseCore nightly build crashes in the same way.

I run the software under Windows 7 SP1 64 Bit.

I attached a very simple example XML file that kills the importer.

Best regards

Of course, MuseScore shouldn't crash but the MusicXML is weird.
First, the encoding date is not standard but that's not the cause of the crash.
Second, it's a SATB score but for each staff there are two clefs. The first staff has two G clef. The second one a G clef and a G 8vb clef etc... This causes the crash.

Thank you for testing and your answer. I suspected that the XML is weird, and I will try to ask the authors of SPP for fixing. Unfortunately the founder and main programmer is dead since 2012 :-(
Nonetheless it helps you maybe to find where you have to catch the error to beware MuseScore for killing itself.
