Octave Up/Down Crash

• Apr 28, 2016 - 13:14

I've tried the nightlies for the last couple of weeks on my Windows XP computer, and they all have the same bug. I put in a note, then select Ctrl-up or down to change the note by an octave, and MuseScore immediately crashes. Maybe it's because I'm on Windows XP?


As this doesn't happen on Windows 7, I'd say it is XP's fault. The Qt version we use in the nightlies now most probably isn't compatible with Windows XP, so that could be the cause.

Windows XP is out of Support (by Microsoft) since slightly more than 2 years now (it ended 8th April 2014), so it definitly is time to upgrade or switch to Linux.

Unfortunately it's a work computer, so I don't have the administrative privileges to upgrade. Hopefully the school system will be doing this at some point in the near future.

It's just strange because it was working fine up to a couple of weeks ago. I'm not sure exactly which nightly it started with, because I figured it was just a bug that would be fixed, so I didn't document which version I was on at the time.
