milkdrop and win 8 - 8.1

I recently bought a new laptop with win 8 and installed the last winamp. It worked fine except milkdrop just wouldnt load.... i got a error message saying it was a shader problem related to directx. updated to win 8.1 and still no good. I dont know if its because the latest directx 11 doesnt come with its previous versions included but it just wouldnt work. I took a wild guess and figured if i found an older version of dx and installed it and voila! fully functional winamp again. i got the directx9 2010 version off file hipo. If anyone has this prob, give it a try. hope this helps anyone with this problem.
