Musescore 2 (plus a couple of updates) closes down when I attempt to print, either on the Musescore print tab or File/print. Any ideas? had same problem with "synthesizer" earlier but that seems resolved.

I mean, whatever is in the there, it must be wrong if it launched 1.3. My guess is you were following the instructions from the 1.3 handbook rather than the 2.0 handbook. What is the text *exactly* in that dialog, and can you verify it against the 2.0 version of the Handbook (

For 2.0 on Windows it should be C:\Program Files (x86)\MuseScore\bin\MuseScore.exe

For 1.3, the executable was mscore.exe, as mentioned above. There is no way that running an executable named MuseScore.exe should ever open 1.3.

I have uninstalled and re-installed Musescore 2.0.1 (I have Windows Vista)

I was and am using the handbook link you provided.

Windows key = R comes up with:


Browse comes up with: Program files, Musescore and there is a list of folders starting with "bin" and finishing with "uninstall"

If I open bin there are three files: iconengines, imageformats and mscore (not musescore)
I cannot find any with Musescore .exe

Sorry to be a pain but i do need to print! Above all, thanks for your help and forgive my lack of tech detail.

WHat is your default printer? Can you change that to something else temporarily and see if the problem continues?

As a workaround until we figure out what the problem is, what about if you use File / Export to export as PDF, which you could then print from another program?
