A new account fixed everything!
Then you know the problem was something inside your User Library in the old account. Rather than "slash and burn" to the new account, I would go back to the old account and try to fix the problem. Perhaps copy the entire MakeMusic Finale 25 folder from the new account to the old one.
Find and purge is one way. Biting the bullet and doing a clean and install is the other way.
I did a clean job install two years ago — my first in over 20 years. Cleaned out 200G of PPC crap. It was a good thing for me but I hope never to do another.

200 Gigs of PPC apps? That must have been all of them!
I've not done a clean install since about
2003 probably. My current MBP system disk is a clone of one from my 2009 MacBook, which was migrated from my 2006 iMac, which was migrated from my G3 iBook. Every new OS has been updated over the existing installation. There's almost certainly some "cruft" from 10.2, and all points in between, on my 10.12 disk. But I don't think it amounts to much.
I had a lot of old apps and junk going back to my Mac+. Now that I recall, I had done a clean install on my Performa 6200 so it must have been further back than I remembered.
I don't believe in clean installs but a major bug in OS 10.9.4 (fixed in 10.9.5) forced the issue. My system does run better but it took me three days to rebuild from scratch. Thank goodness for Time Machine—I was able to copy all of my files from the backup.
At that time, I moved a lot of ancient history over to a G4 I set up to boot into 9.22 and 10.4.11. With a 30 year back catalog, I still have occasions to go back to old files and update them.
