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 Windows 7/10 VM & 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 access to the .NET components that RadioDJ requires
