Composer helper stops communicating

Contributor II

I gave up trying to make it work under 10.15 and use 10.14 for packaging.
The 10.20's seem to stop at various spots during the after snapshots
(ran it 3 times; different stops; had to force quit once - the other two said the helper application had stopped communicating) 10.11 Composer does it with no problems carrying on doing the after snapshot.

I had a similar issue. It turns out the permissions on Composer were wrong. You may want to check that both the owner and group have rwx.

Thank you

I'm also having this problem on Big Sur. I can't create many packages due to this error.

Have same problem with Big Sur and 10.34.2 packages

You can also try checking the Composer preferences > Executable Types in PKGs > One or more executibles need Rosetta.
