Musescore.exe has stopped working (for one score only)

• Jan 17, 2017 - 16:33


I've been working on the score below lately; whenever I open it, a popup saying, "Musescore.exe has stopped working" appears with the Musescore loading screen in the background.
Strangely enough, this only happens with this particular score.

I've done multiple factory resets with no results whatsoever.

I'm running MuseScore 2.0.3 on Windows 7 Pro.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!



Crashes in the latest development version too, 'famous last words':

Seems again a Glissando went wild, just like in

And indeed, here too a duplicate Glissando, I removed the duplicate and now the file loads, see attached.

Any idea how that could have happened?

Been working with lots of Glissandi lately, and I've been on and off my computer. Computer could have fell asleep or hibernated and that could have effected the file.

I believe I found the spot where you removed the duplicate; I won't touch that part anymore.

Could you explain why the Glissando problem happened? I'd like to know to hopefully avoid this in any future score of mine.

Thanks again.

If I only knew...
Only thing I noticed when looking into the mscx file (taken out of the mscz file) to check for Glissandos (as that's what the stack trace hinted at) is that there were 2 Glissandos with the same ID right after one another. In both case I've seen so far. So I just deleted the 2nd of these Glissandos
