I don't know much about this..but you must have downloaded a virtual dj executable? If you can't run it then your permissions must be incorrect. This is a Win 10 management issue. So what kind of user are you?

1. Make sure you have a Spotify Premium subscription
2. Use a real Spotify login - using a Facebook login has caused problems in the past
3. Go to the "Online Music"->"Spotify" folder in VDJ.
4. Click the login link that appears in the center pane
5. Login. If you still have problems try logging into Spotify's webpage and see if you need to change settings for "Set a password for your devices"
6. Do a search, and drag n drop one of the results to of of the decks
7. Wait for a couple of minutes (Spotify has a download speed limit on their open API) until the track is fully downloaded and analyzed (or you can start playing it when it's partly downloaded)
8. Remember that Spotify doesn't support download to cache or offline play. Only Content Unlimited and Pulselocker do that
9. If you want faster download speed get a Deezer account instead. The content is about the same as Spotify, but the download speed is much faster (But remember that Deezers doesn't support download to cache or offline play either)
10. IMO: Don't rely on any of the Online Music options for all you music for a gig. It's more useful for getting a couple of tracks pr gig that you don't have locally

Try the following:

1. Make a Backup of ../Documents/VirutalDJ (in case you want to save your settings, history etc...)
2. Delete ../Documents/VirtualDJ
3. Delete ../Program Files (x86)/VirtualDJ
4. Delete "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\VirtualDJ" from regedit.exe

Now everything regarding VDJ is deleted from your system.
Download from here and try again to install it:
