MS 4 crashing after soundfont installation

• May 25, 2024 - 21:19

Hi, I've tried to install a sound font on Win 11 by double clicking. The installation failed, with an error. But since every time I open the mixer and even mouse over the soundfont selection, MS 4 hangs and will not recover.
I've tried uninstalling MS, deleting all folders. Deleting the Musescore foler in user.
Even after fresh install, no changes.
Can somebody help me?

"Open with" isn't the way to install a sound font. After downloading and extracting the folder, open the folder and copy and paste the sax font into your MuseScore Sound font folder. Then select it in the mixer.

I put the whole folder in the Font folder, but then, in the mixer, I couldn't select any other fonts I have.

Maybe maybe not. It's just the way it works now. As I said, I put your sax font in my MuseScore without a problem. It's isn't a work around, in my view. I know some people will say it is a bug, or a regression, or bricked. We are all different. "Open with MuseScore" is just as odd to me as "Copy and paste" may be to you.
