I can no longer reinstall Virtual DJ please help!

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

Guys, I desperately need your help with this problem. I have the free home version of Virtual DJ but I cannot install it because I get an error when I tried to set it up

"VirtualDJ is not a valid short file name".

I have just changed my hard disk drive and it has been installed with Windows 7 and Virtual DJ has been working fine before the hard disk drive was changed.  I am in need of your suggestions guys because I am now a little frustrated with this problem. Any help would be really great. Thank you.

First, you have to uninstall the Virtual DJ software from your pc. After uninstalling, download again the Virtual DJ software from where you have downloaded it from. Please make sure that the file that you are downloading is from a legitimate website. You have to download it again because the path of the Virtual DJ software may have changed due to the changing of hard disk drives. After downloading, try to install it and see if the same problem is still going on.  If the same problem still persists, install Virtual DJ directly on C: (your hard disk drive) not on the desktop or in any other folder.

Thank you very much!

The full error reads:

“VirtualDJ is not a valid short file name”

This error was posted on the VirtualDJ forums page or the community section by one VirtualDJ home user but there were no more replies after two solutions were posted. So, I guess, one of the solutions fixed the problem. One suggested solution was to use “Long Path Tool” if you receive an invalid short file name error.

Go to the Long Path Tool home page and download the free version. If this doesn’t help, try downloading the latest and update your version. Go to the VirtualDJ download page and download the version for your computer. The latest version at the moment supports Windows 7, Windows 8.x, and Windows 10. For Macintosh, it supports OS X 10.9 Mavericks and higher.

Note: VirtualDJ is free for home users or for personal use.
