Repeated Crashes on Windows 7

• Jan 24, 2011 - 22:56

Running Windows 7 and Tried to invoke MS and it failed to load into the GUI application, but closed right away. Fixed that (apparently) by renaming the musescore.ini file.

Prior to that I had tried to remove and reinstall MS, reboot the OS, etc.

The day before, I had left off by installing some additional soundfonts and trying them out. I saw very spotty and somewhat buggy performance. Sometimes I would play the score, and stop at some point and the last note would continue to sound until I reloaded the soundfont. I saw an earlier post that suggested the computer was too low end. FYI, here's what I have:

MS Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
AMD Athlon II X4 630
Using onboard audio from motherboard, realtek chipset

After all that, I opened a new score and started entering notes. I had several additional crashes while entering notes, selecting notes, etc. After another day and another reboot, I continued with the score and saw no additional crashes.

At this time I don't know the exact steps and I haven't been able to reproduce it. I will say, after the first crash, the following ones were on the order of "start the software, load the file, select a note, delete it, crash" or something equally brief.

It could be limited to the score I was working on, but that has also been working OK lately.

If the problem recurs, I will provide additional information.
