MuseScore 1.3 fails to run

• Feb 28, 2013 - 06:16

I just updated to MuseScore 1.3 but the software fails to run. I eventually went back to using MuseScore 1.2.

I tried Revert to factory settings . I also tried manually deleting both MusE folders in AppData folders, but MuseScore 1.3 failed to run. I uninstalled and reinstalled, downloaded a new copy, uninstalled and installed again, but no luck.

I uninstalled MuseScore 1.3 and reinstalled MuseScore 1.2 and it works fine.

I'm running on Windows 7 64-bit. Willing to do further tests.


I tested the package on Win7 64 bit and Win8 64bit and it runs.
Do you see any error message? Did you use the exe or msi package? Can you check in your program files directory that Musescore is installed, run mscore.exe from there? Anything special on your computer? Like Qt in the path?

It is also not running on my Windows 8 64 bit system.

I used the .EXE installation from the front page download link

Haven't been able to do any investigating - got too much on today.

Following Nicolas's comment I removed the C:\Qt\4.8.4\bin reference from my %PATH%

MuseScore 1.3 immediately ran successfully.

Hope that's it for other Windows users

PS It appears MinGW has also to be removed from %PATH%. As an experiment I added C:\MinGW\bin;C:\MinGW\lib back in to the path and 1.3 wouldn't run. Removing it again solved this issue.

I think the problem could be having the MinGW from MinGW-builds in the path.
In my XP Pro SP3 MuseScore1.3 crashes at startup if C:\MinGW\bin is in the PATH.
The conflicting library is "libstdc++-6.dll".
