Can't open program since uploading 3.6

• Jan 26, 2021 - 13:12

I installed 3.6 and now the program will not open. I get a message: "Windows cannot access the specified path or files. You man not have the appropriate permissions to access item."
I have tried to run it as an administrator and the results in the same message.
I use the program all the time and would like to be able to open it.
Any suggestions?

Thanks for the reply. Windows 10. Have rebooted and tried the Repair option several times already.
Seems to do nothing. It askes you to Test Program but that button does nothing. Have removed 3.6 and installed it again, several times to no avail. Getting same message.

In which path did you install the program ?
Could you post a print screen of the folder containing the MuseScore.exe, and one of the properties of the shortcut you use trying to launch the program ?

Right click on the MuseScore icon on your desktop. Select "Properties" at the bottom of the pop up. The default Target should be C:/Program files/MuseScore 3/bin/MuseScore 3 exe.

On very rare occasion, the desktop icon is corrupt. It might be worth selecting "Open file location" and double click the highlighted exe.
