This old mscz file crashes MuseScore 4 WIN, reports corrupted but open on MAC
S3 - Major
If I try to open one of this two files, from Musescore on Windows 10, it simply crashes.
On MacOS (Ventura) I was able to open the first file, get errors (file corrupted), save with new name, add some data, and it opens (with the corrupted message)
I've tried to "look inside" the file (mscz is an actual zip...) but found no evident error, just "blindly testing" for XML markup found the file has a not perfectly aligned markup and some tags does not close weel (for example, Author (Mozart) and bith-death years are splitted on 2 rows... but this normally does not have a crash consequence on XML files...
Ave_verum_Mozart.mscz stems from MuseScore 1.3 (which doesn't check for nor report corruptions).
MuseScore 2(.3.2) and 3(.6.2) do report corruptions and tell you exactly where.
See How to fix a score that contains corruptions
Fix those first, with corrupt scores anything can happen
OK, with Mac (at home, later) I will fix those score. But at work (where I'm now) I've a windows workstation and a copy of musescore 4 and in this case the behaviour is different from mac: NO corruption reported, only crashes...
I think this is something to check.
Obviously, as per your kind suggestion, I will fix the scores before doing anything else on my home Mac...
nevertheless... this is a strange behaviour (the difference between mac & win application)
ok, try to fix, but first step is "Click Show Detail"... I do not see this option, and searched in menus with no result...
I've also tried to delete part as stated, but no "delete" button is visible...
how to find where is the problem?
Found suggestion to try to upload to musescore online and see errors... no errors, seems to upload, but in reality it does not complete (I suppose)
this application now it's unusable constantly crashing i hope it gets fixed soon because it's really annoying.
Please don't highjack foreign bug reports, only use them if it is really the same
