bad file descriptor

• Mar 29, 2020 - 00:28

I am a teacher and desperately need musescore to teach in these remote teaching times ...Each time my students send me a mscz. file the graphic for a new version appears briefly when I try and open these files ) grey with a more slender font) and then a prompt tells me to update which I have tried to do countless times ...the blue icon that I press to get access tells me that I have the current version ..but clearly I don't..a further prompt says I have a bad file descriptor. any help ??
The first attached file will not open and causes the "bad file descriptor " message.....
The second file was created with the new version which somehow was able to be looks different to the blue shortcut.

Looks like you've posted three versions of essentially the same question. Better to respond in one of the previous threads, and provide the additional information requested.

Problem sorted Marc...Some how Windows 10 downloaded an earlier version when a student emailed me a composition in 1.5 or something very early...and each new composition submitted defaulted to the earlier version when a link was put in google classroom ...with remote learning now a reality in Australia and many other places
now a reality...this may happen again somewhere....the colour of the Icon gave it away !!

thanks for getting back to me

I was having badfiledescriptor issues as well, also with a score that evolved over many versions of MuseScore. I saved as uncompressed MuseScore 3 file (instead of compressed, as it had been saving previously), and it appears to have resolved the issue (for now!).

So I've recently encountered the same problem. This page was a second top from my search. But it did not provide solution.

(for windows 10 or 11)
go to settings => Privacy and Security => Windows Security => Virus & Threat protection => Manage settings =>
Manage controll Folder access => Allow an app through controlled folder access => add allowed app => Recently blocked apps => Musescore
