Rekordbox 1.5 consistent crash

I have just updated to RB 1.5 on XP X86 and cannot get the program to stay open for long before crashing, probably 10 seconds maximum.


I have read the guides on how to avoid crashes and have:

  • removed all USB or other mass storage devices

  • searched for the datafile.edb 


I have removed and reinstalled RB 1.5 but it loads every time with my songs already showing before inevitably crashing.


If possible I would like to do a clean install so I input the license key again and reload my libraries however as I said, everytime I reinstall RB it loads with my library, doesnt request license key etc. I have also tried deleting all of the remaining Pioneer folders in program files after uninstalling but with no result.

Advice please anyone?

Have you removed the hidden pioneer folder?


this is where you will find the backup database.

You may need to show hidden files n folders
