Important: Windows 10 blocking .dll files...
« on: November 10, 2017, 03:13:47 PM »
I switched on the Windows 10 box earlier to test out a theory to do with my audio issues,

While inspecting files in RadioDJ folder I noticed that Windows was blocking all of the .dll files inside the RadioDJ folder.

I had to go through them manually one by one to get them all unblocked from "properties" Not sure why or how Windows is doing this

(Sadly it still hasn't fixed my issues)

This post is just a heads up to let people know that they need to keep an eye on the permissions of the .dll files in the RDJ program folder.

Its all a bit strange!

Just check the .dll files in the RDJ folder by right clicking on one and selecting properties to see if its blocked, if so unblock it then go do the same to the other DLL files inside the RadioDJ folder even the ones in folders such as plugins and bass files..

Can't help but also Notice Windows 10 seems to keep marking the RadioDJ folder as "Read only" not sure why its doing that or how to fix it...

Windows 10 on developer preview worked great its the updates since then that have screwed us over... Fast forward to now Windows 10 is becoming unusable for me had to go back to Windows 7 just so I can run software successfully.

My issues on Windows 10 now go back 6 months+

Something, somewhere in an update stopped certain pieces of software from functioning properly (RadioDJ included)

I've troubleshot and troubleshot and nothing seems to be working as it should, A reset back to a blank Windows 10 OS didn't fix the issues either.

I'm just flabbergasted that an operating system can defeat me so easily (Its Windows ME all over again LOL)

It's just a shame that a program designed for windows was defeated by windows
