drag the virtual dj folder from documents to trash

empty it.

then browse to this file

Users/yourname/Library/Preferences/com.atomixproductions.virtualdj.plist

(your name means your username)

drag this file to the trash and empty.

reboot.

reinstall.

skyfxl, when I try to unistall Virtual DJ this is the message that I am getting ( The operation can not complete because the Item" Virtual Dj" is locked). I try to unlock it by right cliking and gong to info. It will not allow me to unlock Virtual DJ. Any other solution to this problem?

If you want to find out why the file is locked use "lsof" command. You need to do this in the terminal window.

For more info see http://switchersblog.com/2007/03/29/finding-who-locked-the-file-in-mac-os-x.html

for example try

lsof | grep -i Virtual

when i start my system up before i start virtual dj I see nothing.

When you start it and run it you get a ton of stuff..

Next I existed virtual DJ and ran it and I still see a file in use and that's
/Users/joe/Document/VirtualDJ/.DS_store

Note the process id number. Its the first number after the processname. Kill that process.

(When I ran it the process hold for the VDJs dsfile was mdimport (which is Spotlight) )
Now do the lsof | grep -i Virtual

and you should have nothing. You should be able to Uninstall VDJ.


If this doesnt help provide a screenshot of your terminal window.

Just a tip for completely uninstalling Mac Apps: try downloding APPZAPPER. It's the uninstall app that mac "forgot" to put in OSX. Works great. Drag & drop.

How do i completely unistall virtual dj? I had a differently named user before and now every new virtual dj i install it creates a folder with the old user's name. How can i move everything(including the registry files).
