Just bought CDJ900s & Rekordbox won't start! Aaaaarrrggghhh!
I bought some brand spanking new and uber cool CDJ900s yesterday and there was a Rekordbox CD with them that I installed. The installation process went fine but when I clicked on the icon to then open the program it crashed...continually. So.....I thought I'd check if it was the latest version, which it wasn't, so I did a full uninstall of the old version of Rekordbox and downloaded the very latest version 1.5.0. Same issue again with the latest version. I can't even get to a screen to enter my serial number...it just crashes continually. I've looked in the forums about renaming the database files etc but I don't have any database files in the Pioneer folder on my c drive as not been able to get that far to create them. Could really do with some help please!

uninstall the software and remove the hidden dir.
this might help .....
Hi Pionix, thanks for the suggestion. I've done that and reinstalled but it still doesn't work. Really frustrating.
Any other suggestions please anyone?
Have you checked your computer for viruses or lost programs as it could be an installer problem i had the same thing and did a repair on my laptop and repaired the broken program files, i havent had any problems since (touch wood). Hope this helps
Yep.....done all the basic checks and still no luck. Really driving me crazy now.
I've spoken with the engineers and they'd like you to look in the following folder:
(If you have your hidden folders enabled, you may not see it.)
If there are any .dsmp files in that folder, could you please attach them to a reply here. Thanks.
I've found a way of getting RekordBox to open....I run the exe file as an Administrator rather than just double clicking on the icon on my desktop. When it opens it'll analyse a couple of tracks then crash...every single time. I've just found the folder you refer to and have attached the latest .dsmp file. Hope you can help.
Hi - I too have the problem of not being able to open rekordbox - crashes on start up every time - I'm running it on my brand new iMac - uninstalled reinstalled already .
I was using it all day copying all my playlists over from iTunes and then it just crashed and I haven't been able to open it since.
Got to say its so frustrating
Goto the pioneer folder and move the database.edb file to your desktop
open rekordbox then import your database back in using file > library > restore
See if that works.
@Pionix > We've found the reason for the errors in your database, but the re-import you performed doesn't actually correct them and won't necessarily work for others either -- please don't suggest users try it.
@Andy Moy > It is always best to start a new thread for your own issue.
Have you read and followed this thread yet?
Aside from this, it is most likely a corrupt file in your database which is causing the issue. If you are still having troubles after following the thread in the link I provided, you should start a new thread and provide your details on your computer OS type and version, Rekordbox version, and anything else that might be handy to know.
