Ok let's test this:

Rename the folder .\VirtualDJ\Plugins\SoundEffect\ in .\VirtualDJ\Plugins\SoundEffect_old\

And then launch VirtualDJ

I had this same problem when ever I scrolled through the effects with the effect dial on my mixtrack pro. It would say 'error opening xml plugin file'. I finally solved it today! I went to Virtual dj/ Plugins / Sound effects/ then I deleted all the effects except for the standard ones like backspin, beatgrid, flanger, flippin double etc.... then I tested virtual and it worked perfectly.
So I figured it must be one effects causing the problem. So 1 by 1 i added the extra effects I liked back to the sound effects folder and testing virtual dj each time to see if the error would come back.
