Problem: Finale 2008 lost its authorization. If you tried to re-authorize, the MakeMusic server would not allow because we already allocated all seats of our site license.
Solution: Evidently a known problem with the Mac 10.5.7 update. Finale has a patch fix. http://makemusic.custhelp.com/app/answers/preview_detail/a_id/1679
Run the patch. Restart. Problem solved on some machines. I’m contacting customer support for the others.
Now if I could get Finale to not crash every time you quit the program. Not a huge problem as you are trying to close it out anyway, but it just seems wrong. Applications should quit without crash issues.
