Musescore 3 not working. It says I need the new Mac OS 10.12, but I can't download it because my Apple Password isn't working.

• Jan 7, 2019 - 21:15

Musescore hasn’t been letting me save anything, so I kept going to “Save As” and replacing the old file. It might be because there’s no storage on my computer. I ended up downloading the newest version of musescore 3, but now I’m unable to open musescore because I have to have newest Mac update. My computer won’t let me update because my Apple ID password isn’t working. I tried contacting apple, and they were no help.

Now I’m unable to open my musescore file that I’ve spent a lot of time on.

Is there any way someone can help me out? Can you please check to see if you're able to open Eureka Octet?

Thank you,

I remember when I downloaded the new musescore, it asked me if I'd like to replace the old musescore and I said "yes". I wonder if that has anything to do with this. There's a question mark over my Musescore 3 icon and if I click on it, it won't open. I asked two other people to try and open "Eureka octet" and they had to download the new musescore and update their computer, but it says "Cannot read file /Users/dylanhayes/Documents/MuseScore2/Scores/Eureka Octet.mscz:". This is exactly what it says when I try to open mine.

Which 2 files? Here I see only one?
The other you mentioned in is 0 bytes, nothing fixable there.

Attached a fixed version of that one score, I had to remove the Piano part, but that was incomplete/truncated and broken anyhow, So I've just regenerated it, this will have gotten lost of layout changes you applied, so check closely
