VirtualDJ LE Installation Guide



VirtualDJ LE is a Limited Edition of the software that is bundled by manufacturers with their hardware. This provides a VirtualDJ License to use your new controller right out of the box. It is limited in features (compared to Pro Infinity) and has no time limit or expiration.

For a complete list of limitations of VirtualDJ LE vs Pro please see here.

The following guide will walk you through the process of getting started with your new software, installation, and other options.



1. Finding your VirtualDJ LE License Number (keycode)

Once you open the box to your new controller, you will find the hardware, accessories and documentation provided by the manufacturer. Your VirtualDJ License Number will also be included in the box (in most cases) in one of the following locations:

  • On the sleeve of the installation CD (if included)
  • On a label attached to the bottom side of the controller
  • On a separate card located in the packaging
  • Directly from the manufacturer's website (registration of your device required).

VirtualDJ keycodes can be identified by a 13 character alphanumeric code separated by 2 dashes; followed by a slash with it's hardware ID. The License Number should be clearly identified as a VirtualDJ serial or keycode separate from the hardware's serial/ID number.

XXXX-XXXX-XXXXX/HDWR

3. Login & Registration

Although creating an account and logging in is highly recommended, it is not required to use VirtualDJ LE. Once the software is installed and launched for the first time you will have 2 options:

a) Skip Login/Registration: Completely skip this step by closing the Login window and use the software offline. This will allow use of the LE version with it's limitations.

b) Login/Create an Account: You can Login with your existing account or create one if you don't have a VirtualDJ ID. For more information on how to create an account, please see the Create an Account page.

Note: If you skip the login process but wish to login later during your session, you can go to Settings Licenses to enter your LE keycode or login.




4. Welcome/Detection Window



Once the login process is complete (or skipped) the Welcome/Detection window will be displayed for the controller being used. There are 3 Options to choose from:

Use Soundcard
By default VirtualDJ will output it's sound from the built-in sound card of your computer (this is useful if the you don't have speakers to connect to the hardware at this point). If this option is selected, VirtualDJ will use the built-in sound card of the controller (speakers need to be connected to the device).

You can change the sound configuration at any time from the Settings AUDIO tab.

Change Skin
By default, VirtualDJ will launch with the “Welcome” interface (skin) which offers just the very basics of the software. If clicked, the tailored interface (skin) for the controller will be loaded.

The LE skin is offered from the top Layout menu of the default skin and accessible from the Settings Interface tab.

Enter Keycode
Use this option to enter your LE license/keycode. If the keycode is not entered the controller will only operate for 10 minutes in Demo mode.


Once you have chosen your preferences, click OK to continue.
