Selection filter crashes

Hi, I've just downloaded the Beta 2 of the 2.0 software, and for my first session, happily used (and enjoyed) the selection filter. I've come back to do some more editing of my score, and I can't open the selection filter at all. If I try, either by pressing F6 or using the view menu it just crashes. I've tried with a different file, also restarting the program, and restarting my computer, but nothing has helped. I'm running Windows 7.

Hmm. That should be the case. Perhaps the workspace files have become corrupt. Could you try running "MuseScore.exe -F" from the command line? This will revert everything to factory defaults.

I would run it from the command line, but I'm afraid I'm not very familiar with this. I can get the command prompt up, but I'm not sure what to do after that. I've tried typing in 'start MuseScore.exe-f', but get a message that Windows can't find the file. I've managed to change the directory to where the executable is - I can see MuseScore.exe in the directory listing, but don't know what to do now...

Brilliant! Thanks both - I've managed to do the thing, and it's working again. Now I just need to go and re-do all my personalisations...
Thanks again for such a prompt and useful response :-)

Since apparently there exists a way to generate corrupt workspace info using Beta 2, I'll leave this open, but still "needs info" in that we'd need a way to reproduce the problem to be able to fix it. It *might* have been a random fluke - power sruge causing a disk error, etc - but more likely, there is a bug waiting to be understood.

Having re-started the program, it's now very different to how it had been behaving - I now realise that as well as the issue with the selection filter, the program was very slow to start up - it's much better now, and the playback volume was very loud indeed. Again, this is back to normal now. I'll let you know if it happens again.
