A Frequent search on my website has lead me to post this one:

Q: Why isn't there sound coming from radio DJ?

A: Have you accidentally clicked mute on the Tray icon? Or Muted your speakers/sound card

Have you updated your Windows/Manufacturers Sound drivers that could also be a reason as to why Audio isn't working correctly

If this isn't the cause then please feel free to post and someone should hopefully come to your rescue.

Q: I'm having trouble downloading & installing RadioDJ

A: Download from the main RadioDJ downloads page then you need to (Right Click) on the version number and "Save link as" it will give you the option to save the radiodj.exe of your choice.

Install the .exe as you would any other program.By default RadioDJ will install to the C:\RadioDJ2

Important: Once installed on the root of the C:\ drive give the RadioDJ folder full read/write administrator privileges - You may also need to switch off UAC (user access control) from Start>Control panel>User accounts - Set it to the lowest level.



Then you move onto configuring things:


1) Then you will need to install MariaDB as per these instructions

Once MariaDB is installed and you've checked via task manager to see if "mysqld.exe" is a running as a service then you move onto configuring RadioDJ

2) Inside the RadioDJ folder there's a folder called "setup" open that folder and open databasesetup.exe (as administrator)

Fill out the details of your database

MySQL Server = 127.0.0.1 or localhost
MySQL Database = Give it a unique name
MySQL User = This is usually just "root"
MySQL Password = The PW you chose when setting up Maria DB.

3) Click on "Install database" and fingers crossed if you've entered your details correctly then the database should install.

4) From the main RadioDJ program folder send the radiodj.exe icon to the desktop as a shortcut then open the program from the desktop (as administrator) and start configuring things/importing music.

These are just the basic instructions to get RadioDJ working. If you are still unsure use the Forum SEARCH function your question may well have already been answered.

If you are still stuck then maybe you should ask for help... We don't bite!

It shouldn't be difficult to use and install RadioDJ

F.A.Q: The RadioDJ database loses the tracks that I had previously imported what can it be?

A: Are your files on an external USB hard drive? USB drives sometimes power down if you don't change the settings in device manager and power options. If RadioDJ cannot find tracks it disables them.

Its best to use Internal Hard drives you can get internal drives quite cheap even Sold State drives are coming down in price.

You'll be thankful in the end.

Its also a good idea if you permanantly switch off UAC

There are certain pieces of software out there that just don't work well with UAC during installation.

For anyone else who may come across this topic here is how you Disable UAC (User Access Control) on Windows 10

1) Go to the Start Menu and search for Regedit & run it as administrator.
2)You need to navigate to KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
3) In the right hand pane you need to find EnableLUA right click and choose Modify and change the value to 0




When you have done this Restart your computer and UAC should now be switched off and shouldn't intefere with software installation.

Important: This tutorial involves changing regsitry settings so you run the instructions at your OWN RISK
