I have been fighting composer for a couple of days and what's odd, composer works with .dmg files. I can create .dmg files, but if I choose to create a .pkg file, it fails. Further, if I try and take an existing, working .pkg file into composer and attempt to convert it to source, it fails to convert. I have uninstalled and removed all preference files. I have tried this on a VM, my Mac and another Mac. We have tried three different versions of composer. They are all doing this. This makes me believe an OS update could have borked composer. Anyone else having troubles lately?
Does/has anyone found a solution for this. Can't really go back to an older version as I dont have one. I am running Monterey on Intel with Rosetta added for some other apps to function. This issue has been going on for a long time. Can't really resort to a DMG when the vendor is only offering PKG's.
Has anyone tried to move the following folder out to see if that helps?
I don't say delete it as it keeps your projects in there and I for one don't like losing the contents.
I had trouble years back, and that seemed to help, but I'm not seeing this issue at the moment...
I just came across this issue. I am trying to convert a package to a source I I get "Converting to Source Failed" I am using Composer 10.41.0, on M1 Mac. I tried changing "Executable Types in PKGs" from "Automatically detect executable types" to "One or more executables require Rosetta" but that doesn't seem to work for me. Also I made sure the application has full disk access via Security and Privacy. Not sure what else to try. Any help would be appreciated.
I'm still not seeing this issue, but when I've had issues with Composer in the past, I have moved (moved, not nuked as you lose other good things in Composer) the folder:
To the desktop or other place. Quit Composer first, move, then re-launch Composer. See if that helps...
You'll notice that the items in the left column are gone - which is why I say don't delete it yet.
If it works now, you'll know there was something corrupted in that folder...worth a shot.
