Virtual DJ works well on MP3 and video mixing. Yet sometimes users will face problems when using Virtual DJ and one of the common problems is the invalid skin error, which is usually caused when you log in as one user account while installing and then trying to run it through another user.
Specifically, the user for login is missing the folder named /users/USERNAME/Documents/Virtual DJ/, or /users/YOURNAME/Library/Virtual DJ/ folder for version 7.0.3 of Virtual DJ or above.
To troubleshoot the invalid skin error, you can adopt any of these available methods.
- Use the same user both during your installation of Virtual DJ and running
- Copy the Documents/VirtualDJ/Skins or Library/VirtualDJ/Skins/
Installing an invalid or incompatible skin can also give rise to this error; for example, installing what is designed for the newer version of Virtual DJ. In that case, you can delete the skin from the folder/Documents/VirtualDJ/Skins or Library/VirtualDJ/Skins manually.
If the error remains unresolved, you can try this way:
- Navigate to the Library on your hard drive and trash the Preference file as follows:MacintoshHD->Users/YOURNAME/Library/Preferences/com.atomixproductions.virtualdj.plist
- Go to the official website to download the latest installation file.
- Install the software using the installation file that you download above.
if it is complex for you to understand, there is also an ultimate method to help you troubleshoot the invalid skin error on your Mac- reinstall Virtual DJ on your Mac. When it is difficult for you to fix the error, you might as well erase everything existing and start from scratch.
- Completely remove Virtual DJ from your Mac
- Reinstall the application as the user you will be running it as.
Note: The complete uninstall of Virtual DJ is the premise of the success to reinstall the application. If you can’t figure out how to uninstall Virtual DJ thoroughly on Mac, you can refer to this post.
