Crash when importing ABC

• Feb 22, 2024 - 20:26

I'm using the latest version of MuseScore 4 (4.1.24.....) that I just downloaded in the hope that it would cure a bug I have been plagued with - but it doesn't.

Whenever I try to import an ABC file using Pugins->ABC import, it crashes straight away (before choosing a file) with an error indicating an attempt to write without authority - but I haven't changed any settings.

I've included a crash file but not sure it has enough info.

Anyone get import ABC to work? - If so, any tips?

p.s. I still use MuseScore 3 because of this problem - import works fine.

p.p.s - I use a Mac Mini on 14.3.1 of the OS

Hi Jojo,
ABC converter.
We do seem to have gone from having a brilliant and reliable tool to easily wasting half an hour regularly trying to read through forum and other places to still not get a working tool.

I have never coded and never will. I see "compile this programme" or that and get worried I'll have thieves inside my computer and in any case the processes is usually documented 8 years ago and quite complex for an ignoramus. Never works successfully.

Happy to help but what can we users do to get ABC into Musescore?
