Problem

I have run in the past Winamp on a 32 bit machine on Windows Vista. Recently I have moved to a 64 bit machine on Windows 10. Winamp freezes and locks up on my new machine. Is there a reason for this? Is there something that can be done. I would like to get my Winamp back. I would appreciate any advice you might have. Thank you in advance

My problem is not a crackling/fizzling problem. My issue is that when I start Winamp (I have the Windows 1802 update - if that means anything) it freezes up on me. I can uninstall and reinstall it but the problem returns. Winamp comes up on the screen and then it just stops running. Is there a workaround for this? I would like not to have to chuck the program. Thanks for your help.

It's very likely a plugin issue. Try starting in winamp's safe mode, ini instructions avail via forum search.

BUG #1 = Winamp skips short tracks
Wish #1 = Multiple Column Sorting
Wish #2 = Add TCMP/Compilation editing

bottom line is that Windows 10 is having issues with a lot of other 3th party software, with every update you get the problems expand.
