For the past few years we’ve used Virtualbox to run Windows 7/10 on Ubuntu Studio so we could run RadioDJ..
For the most part its worked relatively OK but there were always issues I couldn’t quite put my finger on or fix.
I’ve just looked on Google analytics at the stats for my website for the period of 1st Jan 2017 – 31st Dec 2017
Yet again I’m blown away by the numbers of people visiting.
61,413 users, 311,051 page views & New sessions 74.37%
At least 31,634 of those page views were for the posts I’ve written about SAM Broadcaster cracks. (Up on the 2016 total of 6,601)

Yes I’m aware this is another post about RadioDJ and how bloody great it is BUT the fact is its far more stable and reliable than other expensive software which you can pay lots of $$$ or €€€ for.
I discovered RadioDJ via a Google search around Nov 2010 but hadn’t used to its full potential until the fateful events of New Years Eve/Morning.
We switched to using RadioDJ on the afternoon of 1st January 2011 after SAM Broadcaster went horribly wrong on us overnight while we were asleep.
Switching to RadioDJ was the best decision I have ever made when it came to software, It was easy to use once I configured its database and options.
This is just a quick heads up for anyone using Windows XP who is thinking of updating RadioDJ from v1.8.2 or older to the new version.
You can’t you’re stuck with v1.8.2 as v2.0.0 requires .NET 4.6.1 and that by all accounts won’t install on Windows XP.

One of my followers on Facebook has had his copy of RadioDJ v1.8.2 up and running for 2 years.
All I can say to that is WOW! That is some going and it makes RadioDJ a record breaker in my books.
I’ve never known a piece of radio software that is as reliable and stable as RadioDJ and yes you can quote me on that.

Installing RadioDJ v2.0.0 the easy way…
We know it can be daunting and scary installing radio automation software for the first time.
Especially if you aren’t used to using software that requires a database, but don’t panic it’s not as difficult as you might think.
If you follow these easy steps and have a bit of patience then you should have the program up and running in no time.
1) Starting off with a FRESH clean install of your Windows operating system is a good bet (But not essential)
You may experience issues if you have a system clogged up with junk files they can slow performance down. Use CCleaner to remove junk files and repair the registry.
Don’t forget to backup files/databases/program settings IF you decide to reformat Windows.
Once you’ve reinstalled/cleaned Windows junk files and downloaded & installed all required security patches/updates/drivers for your PC then you can begin the process of installing and configuring RadioDJ.
