Windows 10 - Finale 25

Trying to get CFX loaded into two banks for left and right pianos.  MIDI VST can do that but ScoreManager won't cooperate and crashes Finale. A dialog pops up wanting to send log files but the attempt to do so fails. Where are the log files and where can I send them?

I'm having similar issues. I'm running Finale 25.5 on Windows 10, and lately the software crashes any time I open Score Manager. I'm running Garritan Jabb3, and two instances of Kontakt. Two, because in Finale, the drumset triggers every time a note is played in any other instrument. So, drums get a separate Kontakt module. Opening Score Manager causes a crash. Then a crash report pops up but doesn't fully load before Finale restarts. Perhaps the crash is because I'm stressing Finale too much. But then I remember how much this software cost. And then I see that this was a problem 2 years ago and hasn't been fixed.

My Finale crashes after selecting Score Manager twice in one session.  EVERY TIME!  What is going on! :(

I posted 7 months ago, and my Finale version was brand new at the time. My laptop at the time was competitively equipped. Here I am today on a brand new laptop, with a high speed gaming processor and 16GB of RAM, still experiencing that same issue.

I spent two months with Finale "experts" last year with the same issue and no solution.  At the time, this was happening with OLDER Finale files I was still working on. Maybe this is your issue?

Nope. New file with setup wizard, not opened from an old version or anything.

Oh... OK  I see - .  Sorry about that, Christopher.  I swear, it's gotta be something! Damn!

Just as a check, have you tried restarting? Deleting the prefs? Setting up a new user account, with only Finale loaded on it?

Hello, Mike:  Which poster's issue are you responding to?  I ask since your suggestions are intriguing, if not confusing me. :)    Thank you.

I have exactly the same issue.

Systematic crash of Finale 26 when opening Score manager. I actually manged to see that I could only open it once, and before the VST are fully loaded (i use most of the time EW Hollywood libraries).

Once the VST are loaded, then I better keep the score manger open. If i close it and try to open it again, the Finale crashes.

Also, finale randomly crashes when I use different VSTs for one instrument in different layers...that prevents me to actually work with different layers effectively as I never know if the sysztem will crash or not...

and i don't believe the hardware to be the problem.

- AMD Ryzen 2950X 16 core

- 64 go RAM

- Windows 10

ARNAUD -  :(  What a shame.  I am beginning to think that Finale does not like 3rd-Party VSTs.... I have the SAME problem with EW Symphonic Orchestra and KONTAKT factory libraries.  Let's keep praying that the Finale team finds a solution.

Enrique, I was making the suggestions for everyone. These are various ways to help isolate - if not fix - many problems.
