Musescore 3.0.2: Writing workspace file failed (in Preferences/when exiting)

• Jan 30, 2019 - 01:20

Not sure what more details I can/should provide, but since updating to 3.0.2 I've been seeing this error every time I apply a change in Preferences, and when I exit the program. I'm not too sure what the significance of it is, either. Reproduced on two Windows 10 computers.

Revision: 8ca4d2c
OS: Windows 10

I just updated to Musescore 3 today (or is it a brand new separate program? I'll have to check if 2 is still on my computer) and I've experienced this same problem at nearly every step when it comes to preferences, plugins manager and resource manager... also I chose Advanced during the initial setup but when the error first happened, after closing the program the first time and restarting, it reverted to basic I think.

Looking at the issue right now. Something is wrong with read/write rights. Anyway, temporary workaround is to Run MuseScore with the Administrator rights.

Confirmed this issue with Windows 10 Pro 1809 build and musescore 3.02.5312

(OS: Windows 10 (10.0), Arch.: x86_64, MuseScore version (64-bit):, revision: 8ca4d2c)

Workaround: give modify permission to C:\Program Files\MuseScore 3\workspaces folder for users
