Bug: Hibernating my Windows 10 PC with an active Musescore session causes Musescore to crash if you play back notes in a score after the computer is started back up again

• May 26, 2022 - 21:57

On my Windows 10 gaming PC, if I minimize a window of Musescore and hibernate the computer, then after startup, I can open the window of Musescore to pick up right back where I left off. However, as soon as I click on a note or try to play back the score, Musescore locks up and I have to end the program. The problem is fixed when I reopen the program. This happens in any score I create in Musescore.


The bug is in Windows changing the references for the audio devices after wakeup (same after sleep as well) and MuseScore picking that up.

The easiest workaround is to click the MIDI-input toolbar button twice after wake-up and before starting playback.
