Engine dj not starting up

Engine dj not starting up. The loading screen stops around ¾ and then the taskmanager says: ‘Engine dj not responding’.

Already tried:

  • Uninstall,
  • Reinstall,
  • Repair,
  • Use database backups,
  • Removed files from local music folder,
  • Removed some Registry entries,
  • Reinstalled Microsoft VREDIST,
  • Did all windows updates
  • Tried also older versions of engine dj.

Without success.

If I switch to another user it works, but I need it on my own user working. Any idears?

One thing you could try is copying the hidden folder in AppData\Local from the user that works to the one that doesn’t.

C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Local\AIR Music Technology\EnginePrime

@kradcliffe, just tried, but didn’t work. Even removed it totally.

The only other thing I can think of (assuming you’ve cleaned any relevant stuff from the registry) is to install with admin privileges. The fact it’s working in one user and not the other sort of rules out issues with your graphics card or DirectX
