MuseScore deployment in JAMF on MacOS

New Contributor

I am trying to deploy MuseScore 4 in self service to allow a lab of Mac’s to download the application. I first made it available via a policy, and the base package taken from MuseScore. The package would fail to install on my test device. It would download, and then just fail. I then went and made a package using composer(taking a snapshot>installing the app>opening app>finish capture>create package). I then deployed THAT package in self service and got the same results. I have done this so many times with other applications, what am I missing with this one? Have any of you successfully deployed this app?

Does the package you are uploading run locally? ie does it work independently of JAMF. 

What are the logs saying (JAMF Policy logs, macOS's install.log)? 


I went ahead and made a package using composer for this app, and it runs fine. Granted I did not upload the package in to JAMF or try to add any pre/post install scripts or anything.

This is not what we use but it works. 

Would you like to give Installomator a try? The label hasn't been updated, so you will have to change it from MuseScore 3 to 4 and its URL. They have version 4.0.1 now, you can change it if you want, we just stay with 4.0

Change to this

    name="MuseScore 4"
    appNewVersion=$(versionFromGit musescore MuseScore)
