I looked through the forums, but couldn't find a fix for this problem

I have virtualDJ 5, when I start the program it will open and get to the loading skin process, but then an error pops up that reads: Invalid Skin File (error line %i in the xml). Is there a fix for this?

The most common cause of this error is installing the software while logged in as one user (E.g: Administrator) and then trying to run it as a different user.

The other user is missing the Documents/VirtualDJ folder. The program will not run without this.

To resolve, please either:

(1) Install the software as the user you will be running it as.

(2) Manually copy the Documents/VirtualDJ folder across to the other user.

I've just got VirtualDJ Pro, every time I try and open it, it says 'Invalid Skin File (error line %i in the xml)', how do I solve this?

In that case, please register your Pro serial number on the page and download the latest v7.0.4 from the Download Center:

If the problem persists, please contact support:

Except that upgrading doesn't solve the problem. The problem also applies to the "home" version. I'm stuck with this one too.

My guess (and my experience) is that since Virtual DJ 7 (or at least 7.0.4) the program will ONLY accept zipped skin files. Unzipped files give the "error line 0" message... And the zip file (at least on my computer) has to be made by WinZip. Zip files made with WinRar, 7-Zip, or the internal zip utility of Microsoft Windows XP will also give the same error message. Does anyone out there have the same experience?
