Sibelius won't open!!

Postby TheScriabin » Thu May 19, 2011 2:32 pm

Hi, can anyone help?

I cannot open Sibelius at all. I have had a problem for a while now with Sibelius crashing, shutting down and then a message appearing asking whether I wish to retrieve old saved scores. Usually this works but now it won't do anything. Now it continually crashes itself before the score is even opened.

I have no idea what to do..

I am running Sibelius off a Macbook and I'd hardly say my computer is over crowded with data or anything like that. I don't run computer games or download films or anything that is likely to use a lot of memory as I just use the Mac for work.

Any suggestions much appreciated. Pretty desperate to get up and running again!

Have you checked the FAQ for threads on startup problems on the official Sibelius forum?

On a PC, there are a few incompatibility issues and driver problems to be addressed, but I'm not a Mac user so I have no experience of crashes on that OS.

TheScriabin, have you made any progress on this? I am experiencing a similar problem which I just posted at in "Technical Issues." Sibelius is still working on a PC laptop.
