Program crashes when importing Guitar Pro File

• Feb 21, 2021 - 08:25
Reported version
S2 - Critical

On Mac OSX 11.2.1 open one of the attached Guitar Pro files downloaded from Justinguitar. Musescore crashes immediately and a new start is necessary.

Not sure whether the severity is ok. But it's a import format issue. Therefore I took 3 of 5.


Some Information, which may be useful?
When opening these three files with GP7, I notice that a warning appears (in blue, top right of the screen - image below) : "Informations. The document is locked. You have to unlock it first".
And so, you need a password (which I don't have - issued by the justinguitar com website, I guess) to open this file.
Of course, it is not exportable in any format, XML or other.
And yet, looking at the contents - image below - it is very simple, nothing seems a priori to be able to cause such a failure to open ?
So I wonder if the real or possible/related cause of this issue might not be this unlocking problem?


In reply to by cadiz1

thanks for the reply. I guess this is not the issue. This could be an issue. I don't have Guitar Pro, but the files are free for downloads and no passwords are given e.g.
in the Downloads Tab
Maybe there is a read only protection in guitar pro?

When trying to open the file musescore directly crashes and there is no option to enter a password.

But probably it's not important if I'm the only one reporting this issue and no one else is using this feature.

Thanks for the great program anyway to all who contribute!

Seems the import doesn't find any measures in the file
