When I add the google map widget Muse hangs then crashes, no Adobe error message, just a windows "checking for solution" dialog. This happens even if it is the only program running (Computer capable of running the rest of CC smoothly. I have tried disabling Windows firewall and running as an administrator, same issue. Let me know if any other information is required, thank you.
Just tried uninstalling/reinstalling with the same crash occurring.
Hey Inkwell Graphix,
We didn't come across such kind of issue previously.
However, I see this as a window's issue more than an application issue.
We can although try some trial and error methods to see if the issue gets resolved.
It might also happen because of preferences.
Please try the following steps see if any of them works.
Solution 1: Reset Preferences
Replace mshtml.dll file:
Now try to launch Muse and check if it works.
Hello, I replaced the mshtml.dll file with the one provided (required altering the system32 folder permissions in case someone comes here in the future looking for an answer.) After changing the extension for Muse.exe I could not launch the program either from the shortcut (broken link) or from the Creative Cloud launcher. I changed the extension back to Muse.exe and ran the program from the CC launcher and when placing the google maps widget I received this error:
After hitting "OK" the window closes and Muse crashes.
I also attempted to uninstall and reinstall without keeping user preferences with the new MSHTML.dll and it had the same hang and crash as my original problem.
Thank you for your help so far I hope you can help me out, thank you.
Sorry that it didn't work, can you please think of any last action performed by after which this crash is triggered, maybe any update or plugin install.
And I am not sure weather it is relevant can you please open Google chrome and make sure that your are logged into your google account.
I don't use muse too often, and this is the first time since maybe 2015 that I've tried to embed a google map, and that time I used the html object insert to do so. I am logged into my google account. Someone somewhere mentioned updating internet explorer as a way to update mshtml, I will try that.
I do often run into issues with uBlock Origin on websites, although never before with a program. Should I try whitelisting some URLs on that? (Edit, tried disabling the extension, but crash occurred again.)
Edit 2: Tried following the steps here to update and replace the MSHTML.dll file, restarted computer, same hang-crash. Hmmm. I will keep troubleshooting.
Hello again, I have tried a few other things (updating flash, etc) and was wondering if you had any other thoughts, or if this is a Windows problem where I should direct my question, thanks!
Edit: Unsurprisingly Microsoft support believes this is an application issue.
Is it only the Google Map widget which is causing crash?
Have you tried all the other widget and tell if anyone of them also triggering the crash?
Just to remove any confusion with the current version, can you please download a pre-release build of Muse from here - Help the Muse team test new responsive features - Join Prerelease and let me know if it works.
I have just tried the other social widgets and they do not cause a crash. I will download the prerelease tonight and report back tomorrow, thanks!
Okay everyone from the future I have fixed the issue.
1. I backed up both windows\system32\MSHTML.dll and MSHTML.tlb as MSHTML.dll_bak and MSHTML.tlb_bak so the actual files are inaccessable.
a. This requires changing the ownership of system32 folder.
2. I ran cmd as admin, then used "sfc /scannow" and it found missing files and redownloaded them.
3. I restarted the computer.
Now I can use google maps. Thanks for your help Ankush, I hope this helps someone in the future.
