I know this is an ancient thread but I found my way here because of the OP's exact problem when I tried to install the APE plug-in. Others may find the following info useful:

The problem is that Windows 7 requires administration rights to write a file into
C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\\Plugins\
I simply changed the location to install the plugin to my desktop which worked without issue, then copied the "in_ape.dll" file into C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\\Plugins\ while logged in as administrator. Worked fine!

I also imagine that if one were to right click on "Winamp Plugin.exe" and run as administrator, that would install it directly into the Winamp plugin directory as well.
