I get this error everytime I try to run vdj. What causes it and how do I get rid of it?

here is the screenshot:

It's because VirtualDJ can not find the default skin file.

Recommend you re-download the installer from the Download Center and re-install.

Hi, prior to reinstalling, it is best to delete ur preferences files first.

Please provide a list of all the skin .zip files that are in your Documents/VirtualDJ/Skins folder ...

Mine is doing the same exact thing. Didn't at first but I recently bought the "new" MacBook and when I do a clean install and attempt to run the dmz file VirtualDJ gives me the "error line %i in xml." Even if I completely delete the skins folder and do another install it won't work.

There really wasn't much in my preference folder that pertained to virtualdj. Just a plist that was dated today, due to reinstalling.

The following files are in my skins folder:


As mentioned, when I delete the folder entirely and click "virtualdj" it gives the same error (even with no skins.)

Any input would be splendid....

Delete all of the files listed below before install. Have your serial handy it will ask for it again. Make sure you have the current 5.2.1 installer as well. If you are a licensed user you can find this file on this site. THis will remove all of your changed settings so you will have to re-setup all of your preferences.


Or I suggest you pick up a app uninstall software there are freeware ones out there I recommend AppCleaner. This is how I found these files. This solved all current issues with skin errors I had. They neglected to tell you there are a files in multiple places.

Hope this helps.
Let us know if it worked for the others with this issue.

the key is that you deleted the plist - which is what was suggested above. The plist file is the configuration file for the application.

Yes Thank you. I'm novice on the mac side but yes indeed it was the p.list file.

Thanks for the help.

I am having this problem and have deleted everything on my computer that has anything to do with vdj. I can not find any of the files that people were having problems with. I am still getting this message after installing. Any more suggestions?

Thanks!!!! Works!! !I've solved the problem and everything works 100%. The problem is you have to find the Library folder, But is hidden. In the top menu of the finder, if you click on GO and hold down the ALT key appears, look for it there, you have to delete the folder VirtualDJ. In the Preferences folder you have to delete a file called com.atomix .......... to. Then you have to delete all the icons, application, and VirtualDJ folder created in Documents. When no VirtualDJ files on the computer ... reboots. And then reinstall from the page of virtualdj. Works! Thanks

Sometime it shows Error . Also the sync don't work..

And the skin of Virtualdj Home is very old.

What to do please suggest...
