So far, so good.

I have been using this for a fwe weeks now and it seems as stable as the regular version.

I have had a couple of random crashes. I think it might be a read/write access thing with my USB drive, as it always seems to happen when I am changing chord text attributes.

Keep up the good work.

Why is this thread marked as [Outdated]?

Typically, when you make a new thread for an app, you mark the old one as [Outdated] and add a link to the new thread, so people don't continue to post on the old one.

You did that here
https://portableapps.com/node/20527
and pointed to this thread.

Now that this thread is marked [Outdated], where is the new one?

Mistake

I think that was a mistake; I believe it was from when he hadn't got the latest version up yet.

Basically, the thread isn't outdated but the app is. In fact, the app isn't outdated too but not for you. (Check the Release Notes and download link) Wink

Maybe you shouldn't use that format

Everywhere else in these forums that a thread starts with [Outdated], it means that the thread itself is outdated and it directs users to a new thread.
If you are using this to indicate that the app is outdated, or whatever else you meant, it's really just confusing. I usually skip over any thread that's titled [Outdated] because I assume that there's a newer thread that's relevant.

You can always put the explanation of the version into the description, or notes, whatever; besides, there, you have more space to explain why it's not the latest version.

Correct

And generally, we lock [Outdated] threads. I moved outdated to right after the version number near the download link as that's more what it is referring to. That way we won't accidentally lock this thread.

Am I Missing Something?

It says that it's been updated to MuseScore 0.9.6.3, but I can't find the installer anywhere. What's the story with this? I use MuseScore a lot, and I really need an updated portable version.

At the moment you need a special handshake to get the installer.

What do you mean let it die? If you're not interested in taking the app further, just say so and someone else can take it over.

What's the issue?

I see that you were hosting on Patrick's homepage.
Is file hosting the issue?
If that's it, there are plenty of free file hosting options you can use.

iLike your humor :)

Too bad not everyone gets it...

Anyway, I'm here to report an oddity while trying to install MSP in Multilingual (checkbox "Additional Languages" marked). I got an error:

Extract: error writing to file MuseScore-ro.pdf

After several repeated attempts to install to the same directory (H:\PortableApps\MuseScorePortable), as well as to a different one, the installation failed twice at the file MuseScore-pt_BR.pdf, and all other fails were at the MuseScore-ro.pdf file. Can you try (and) verify it?

1) It happened on XP, without admin. Local HD partition, no (file-system) corruptions present on the drive.

2) The MSP installer is properly downloaded and verified; it's MD5 matches the one posted here (as a proof I got the right installer, it's SHA is 5712842B7B0DF3D0C0A87DE03591EE1862334FFE ).

3) It's a clean install of MSP (no previous versions present).

If it doesn't happen to you, freely disregard my post here. I often seem to get the most unusual reactions from this PC Blum On a positive side, after I installed English-only and tested it, all seemed clean. I'll test it a bit more later on, but initial testing looked pretty clean. 8)

Minor additions:
a) I cleared the cache just in case, re-downloaded it, same MD5, same SHA, same behavior.
b) I extracted the files from the installer with 7-Zip just now. Those two files/manuals don't seem to be broken themselves, as I neatly opened them in a PDF reader. Maybe a part of the installer got corrupted while creating it?
c) Again, if you can't reproduce, forget it as a misbehavior of some sorts on my end.

Take care Smile

Sorry, my bad... Or is it?

Yea, it is. Smile

I examined what was going on... My bad, it works as expected. Smile

I have a dummy user-profile in Windows for testing apps without admin, to keep my personal HKCU and machine's HKLM as clean as possible while testing. Somehow, I forgot to change the %temp% variable of that user-profile to a more appropriate drive, and also I forgot to clean the %temp% on it, since I only spend time under that profile briefly (during my testing of apps). In short, the temp got full, and there was only enough free space for the installer to get to that mentioned PDF file (there was about 65MB free, and it needed 67.5MB). As soon as I cleaned the %temp% (wow, I forgot how much space that thing can take), all works great! Multilingual installation success. Smile

Below the "Space required: 67.5MB" field, the "Space available:" field said there was plenty of space left, since it showed the free space of H: drive. Shouldn't there be a more obvious Error message for cases where there isn't enough free space in %temp%? Just a thought.

Take care

Not Us

NSIS itself makes no checks on TEMP even if the installer uses it. Our installers don't use temp any more than NSIS does (except online installers, which we will be adding a temp space check later). It's assumed that TEMP will have enough space free by NSIS itself. If the drive with TEMP is full, not being able to run an installer is the least of the user's worries.

It's propably me...

I downloaded it, but didn't have time to test it so far.
Did it now and it seems to work. Regshot is clean, no crash, but I did only a short superficial test.

It seems to be more stable and works more smoothly. One of my favorite apps when I do some notation.

Well done!

MuseScore V0.9.6.3 crashes while V0.9.5 works fine

Hi,

I have a Dell laptop with WinXP and I'm forced to use Musescore (portable) V0.9.5 because when I start V0.9.6.3 an error pops up:
"mscore.exe has generated errors ans will be closed by Windows. You will need to restart the program. An errorlog is being created."
I have no idea where to look for, I cannot find any errorlog file, same problem for the non-portable versions of Musescore (and for Celestia 1.6.0, besides)

What can I do ?

many thanks

Most likely a base app issue

Since the non-portable version of MuseScore runs into the same problem for you that is most likely a base app issue. Please report it on the MuseScore forum.
I don't know where the errorlog is located. Perhaps the MuseScore Portable launcher deletes it by design (nothing is left behind on the host machine, all temp files will be deleted).
