My first suggestion is to think back to when it was all working for you.
How long ago was "earlier this year?" It sounds as if you haven't
been doing this right along, but that it has been several months since
you tried. What has changed since then? Were you using the same
computer and same operating system?
Have you checked to be sure that all your drivers and programs are
Have you tried other pieces and get the same problems or is it just one
single piece which is causing this?
Have you tried importing other musicxml files you have created or have
found on the web?
If you would like to send me one of the xml files (off-list) I'll be
happy to try to open it in Finale 2014.5 and see if it works. I'll also
try to open it in Sibelius7 and see what happens.
I wouldn't suggest running out and buying Photoscore because it seems to
me that it's the importing function in Finale which might not be working
properly if you've already tried two different scanning programs and you
get the same error message both times.
