MuseScore now available via Scoop on Windows
Installing MuseScore via Scoop
1. Install Scoop (if you haven't already done so)
Scoop itself must be installed via Windows PowerShell (see instructions here), but once installed it can be used from CMD.
2. Enable the extras bucket (if you haven't already done so)
Scoop is primarily intended for installing command line tools, but enabling the extras bucket allows you to install GUI applications:
scoop bucket add extras
3. Install MuseScore
scoop install musescore
This adds a shortcut in the Start Menu, and enables you to use
musescore or even
mscore on the command line without having to type the full path.
