Ok so have you recreate new useraccount and tried to open Serato DJ?
ju eun park 2:11 PM - 1 May, 2014
yes.but no action
Rui K 2:25 AM - 2 May, 2014
Try reinstall Serato DJ first. And open without internet connection.
Also open Serato DJ with right click "Run as administrator".

Rui K 1:25 AM - 6 May, 2014
Just any of the USB devices you are connected to your computer. Mouse, Keyboard, Hubs etc.

Have you ever been able to open Serato DJ before?

Hi ju eun park,

Can you try this -

Open up "Regedit" on the user account that will not work.

Under the registry HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Serato\SeratoDJ, there is a key "info_whats_new_last_shown" that should say something like Serato DJ 1.6.0 (16000).

Can you please change it to something like Serato DJ 1.7.0 (17000) (a higher version then what you are running) This should prevent the whats new window from showing.

Let me know how that goes
