Save to PDF crashes consistently from 1.3 on Vista

• Mar 17, 2013 - 21:32

I downloaded musescore 1.3 a few days ago. Since then, every attempt to save a PDF has failed.

I didn't find any similar reports within this forum. Hope I didn't do something wrong.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me! --Matt


The same issue has been reoccuring for the past month on 1.3 for Windows 7.

The only way I've found to work around it is to upload online and the download via PDF. Annoying, but works so far.

Please help this issue, this method is time-consuming and this is a serious issue

Is it all scores? For example, even the demo score that loads when you first start MuseScore, or the other scores in MuseScore's demo folder? If so, then it is probably some sort of conflict with something else installed on your system - like maybe a DLL shared by several programs. Hard to say. Check Known incompatibilities for sure, but I don't remember there being anything like this there. I am on Windows 7 and I have never had a problem with saving as PDF.

If you find the demo scores work but your scores don't, then the next step would be to post a specific score you are having problems with to see if others can duplicate the problem. If the demo scores exhibit the same behavior and you don't see anything in the incompatibilities document I mentioned, then report back and maybe people can suggest things to check.
