Musescore 0.9.6 crashes on startup (Windoze XP)

S2 - Critical

Because Musescore really slows up when using a big sound file, I changed to using a smaller one (which may have been faulty). Musescore instantly crashed. Now it won't run any more and I get the session ended unexpectedly window. It crashes either if I say yes or no to restore session.

This is what Visual studio reports:

Unhandled exception at 0x005f56fe in mscore.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation reading location 0x000000c0.

Not knowing where Musescore stores its session information I'm a bit stuck and the score is needed tomorrow.


A modicum of progress. I deleted the MuseScore.ini file which got me a bit further, but it now crashes when I try and load the score I was working on at the time. The default score works OK.

I can open the score with 0.9.5, but the score is rubbish. Bar lines all over the place, spurious rests everywhere, text screwed up, semi-quavers turned into hemi-demi-semis. Help
