Q: Will RadioDJ run in a Virtual Machine environment on Linux or Mac?

A: There is no reason why it shouldn't work providing you give the VM enough resources.

I ran RadioDJ on a Virtual Machine running Windows & I gave the Virtual Machine 4GB out of 16GB to play with and had very few issues.

There is no reason why a Virtual Machine running Windows & RadioDJ shouldn't work flawlessly on a Macbook or Ubuntu.

Linux Users: RadioDJ will NOT work on .wine no matter how hard you try to make it.

Wine doesn't have accesss to the .NET components that RadioDJ requires.

It can cost you HUNDREDS of $$$ to run multiple copies of OTHER radio playout software. Sadly most radio automation software developers don't allow more than one instance of their software on the same computer!

Uncheck the Allow only one Instance box on the options screen, Do this for all instances.

Think of RadioDJ as the Swiss Army Knife of music playout software.
