You realize that it is not normal to advice someone to run a software on a clean Windows installation, without the benefits of it’s security and functionality updates. It’s the same thing like recommending to run a Prime or MC series equipment without the latest firmware update, limiting it’s operation. This way of putting things is beneficial only for the equipment manufacturer because it doesn’t have to work much to identify potential conflicts with third-party software or drivers. A computer is a complex work environment and it’s main use is performing multitasking jobs. What if every equipment manufacturer would recommend to run a software program on it’s own computer? How come you can run third-party software like Rekordbox, Virtual DJ, Serato, Traktor, etc, side by side, and you can’t run a software like Engine Prime in a full hardware and software environment? Denon DJ should continue to keep up the good work, like you should, in order to achieve the complete and seamless functionality of Engine Prime in a normal computer environment. Two things are clear though - always check the recommended specifications for hardware and software compatibility and optimizing the computer environment for the tasks required to perform.
