MuseHub Behaviour / Windows 10
While MuseScore 4.0.1 and 4.0.2 denies to run on my system itself, I had to install MuseHub, After that I found out that it's a very convenient way to manage MuseSounds. After I was done, I've disabled MuseHub on startup and community acceleration, but a background service remained.
Confidently, I went to msconfig and unchecked MuseHub service (see image). After I hit apply, the checkbox has been checked again! I've never seen this-like behavior before.
Well, I went to Task Manager and realized how much memory does this service consume! Not a problem, I pressed "Open file location" and realized that the app placed itself in the "Windows Apps" folder, which is protected from user interferences. Obviously, I was stopped from deleting the service file (see images).
Of course, that's not a big problem to remove this file using Powershell, but why should we all do that?! These are the same people who created a wonderful open source MuseScore and more! Or I've mistaken? Probably people who only use Windows computer to create scores won't care about exceeding traffic coming out of their devices?!
Moreover, if I end this background task and don't restart device, MuseScore launches normally, which means that MuseHub has some another module that protects MuseScore from crashing on my particular computer, which doesn't have to always run in background. After uninstalling MuseHub, the initial problem returns.
I'm lacking of words about this. If someone wants to provide a solution - Windows 10 22H2 19045.2673, all updated.
