winamp 5 crash


Jan 6, 2004
I've been using winamp 5.01 for a while now. Buit yesterday when I went to use it, it started crashing. IT crashes when I either close it, or try to load a directory first. If I click load file, cancel, then load folder it works. It also crashes when I try to play a song.

When it crashes, it goes to the "Winamp has encounter a problem and needs to close. blah blah blah", it says the ntdll.dll file is causing the crash. I tried to copy the file from ..\windows\servicepackfiles\i386.ntdll.dll to ..\windows\system32\ntdll.dll but it won't let me as it is in use.

anyway to fix this?

ok, if I close it, it says ntdll.dll is causing the error. If I play a song, it says gen_nl.dll is causeing the error

Have you got any plugins or anything of that ilk installed?
I had a problem with them crashing it before, but uninstalling them fixed it.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
