Topic: Automated method for Add to Search DB
I'm a DJ and longtime user of Virtual DJ. My mother in law teaches line dance, and uses VDJ for her classes. She's older and experiencing some memory issues, and often forgets to "Add to Search DB" for her music folder. So she often calls me to say "I bought a song but it's not showing up".

I'm wondering if there is an automated way to accomplish this? Perhaps a command-line option, or a macro that can run at startup. Or, just a macro we can program and assign to a button.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

I see autoSearchDB in the settings; but I'm not sure what you mean about the recurse. How can I automate that?

main music folder, right click in in vdj, recurse
everything will be added to the database

you could automate that with a oninint script
browser_gotofolder "PATH" & wait 100ms & recurse_folder

I would not advise to automatically recurse your main media folder on startup though..
Even with M.2 SSD's, recurse can take quite some time to do it automatically on startup (depending on the size of your media library)
It would be better to assign the script on a custom button and call it when needed manually
