MuseScore 3.4.2 does not open mscz file written by version 1.2

• Mar 29, 2020 - 12:12


I want to open one of my older MuseScore 1.2 files with MuseScore 3.4.2, and it fails, telling that the file is corrupted.

Details (in German): "Takt 6, Notenzeile 1 unvollständig. Erwartet: 4/4; Gefunden: 72/48"
Translation: "measure 6, line 1 incomplete. Expected: 4/4, Found: 72/48"

I have created many files using MuseScore 1.2, most other files apprear to have similar problems.
MuseScore 2.0.0 (on my retired PC) could open these file without problems.

What options do I have to reuse the files with version 3 (without downgrading to version 2)?

General bandaid: Get MuseScore 2.x, like as a Portable Ap,p and import the score there first, then import that into 3.x.
But indeed this may not always help (it does in this case though), and you'd need to fix those corruptions as per Shoichi's instrunctions.
