Musescore 4 stops playing after 4-5 measures

• Mar 14, 2023 - 14:34

Musescore 4 stops playing after 4-5 measures, no matter if using Mus sounds or MS Basic sounds. When it stops instruments in mixer are not visible anymore, if you close the programs it remains active in task manager, no possibility to terminate it, PC must restart.
OS: Windows 10 Version 2009, Arch.: x86_64, MuseScore version (64-bit): 4.0.2-230651553, revision: dbe7c6d

The playback stops before the end, I have to save and close the program, but it remains into activities and it is not possible terminate the activities (see "pending tasks" please). Using Musescore 4.0.2 in Windows 10.
I have to export to xml and open it with Musescore 3.6.2 to work on it...
PS: opening the program the keyboard it's always present; if I close it, it appears again next time.....
Many thanks

I have downloaded your score and it plays on my system without any issues.

Open dialogs are "remembered" in the score. If you want to prevent the piano to re-appear, close the dialog and save the score. Thinking because of the "crash" it does not save the last state correct.

I also don't see anything in your score that could cause this, there are just two instruments playing near the end. None of that is really complex.

Might be due to the fact I am running on Windows 11.

Can you export the score to audio without issues?
Do you have other instances of MS open/running?

Also, I have now tested on a Win 10 laptop same version 2009 as you have an no problem here as well.

What I do find a bit odd is that in your taks manager screenshot, there are 3 MuseScore processes, while on my system I have only 2 named MuseScore and 1 named crash-pad_handler. I wonder if this is related to the issue or not. Have you tried doing a "revert to factory settings" or tried to re-install MuseScore?


PS> When I download your score on this Win10 laptop, the Pianokeyboard was not being displayed.
