Software Setup

Before you begin

The included Virtual DJ LE Software cannot be used on a computer which has other versions of Virtual DJ or Numark CUE software installed. Multiple installations of related products will conflict with each other. 

If you own the full version of Virtual DJ Pro, or Numark CUE, use this software instead of the Limited Edition (LE) version of Virtual DJ included with your N4. The instructions below also apply to Virtual DJ Pro and Numark CUE. 

Make sure that only the one version of Virtual DJ or CUE you'd like to use is installed on your computer. Uninstall any other versions of Virtual DJ or CUE.
