When I try to import (load) the attached midi file (OS: Windows 10 (10.0), Arch.: x86_64, MuseScore version (64-bit): 3.2.3.7635, revision: d2d863f), I get the erroe message: "bad midi file, unexpected EOF".
My Timidity AE Midi Player for ex. (on Android) is able to play this file.

Dear all,

thank you for you quick and great engagement - really!!!

To load the midi into a midi editor and newly store a copy is a good workaround!
@ Ziya Mete Demircan: What editor you have used?

...and again it's confirmed:
Linux is the better Windows ;o)

I found this in a Hexa Editor midicomp a tool to go and back from midi to txt and viceversa put to the end 4 character in hexa 00 00 00 00 but the files that read ok musescores is with 00 ff 2f 00 . For example I export from Reaper and has 00 FF 2F 00 AND MUSESCORE READ OK , BUT REPEAR READ OK WITH 00 00 00 00 IN THE END , Musescore should to acept 00 00 00 00 as another end too not only 00 FF 2F 00 THE 4 ascii THAT NEED MUSESCORE ARE 0 255 47 0 or in hexa as i mention 00 FF 2F 00, wE CAN do a program that delete the 4 bytes and append those 4 characters---
