Do you have the FULL version of winamp installed? If you're trying to use a modern skin (.wal file), only the full version supports them.

If that's not the case, please reply with system specs, winamp version etc.

In addition to what k_rock said, read this post. It covers just about every possible skin issue.

[EDIT]

I just saw this...

You have Lite. Lite does NOT support Modern skins. You need FULL.

Winamp 5.09 - Full + EMusic Bundle <-- right-click and "Save As" to download installer

*Note: you may not want to install the eMusic bundle due to this issue.

If you do NOT want that eMusic junk, then do this...
  1. UNcheck "eMusic Icon and Offer for 50 Free MP3s!" (as shown in this screenshot)
  2. You will now have Winamp 5.09 FULL (without the eMusic stuff)
  3. You'll be able to use/download that "really cool" Modern skin you referred to above, and any other as well

Don't email or PM me concerning Winamp. Instead, either start a NEW TOPIC or post a REPLY in the appropriate thread in these forums. This will also benefit others who may have a similar question or problem. But before posting, please first Search the forums and read all FAQs and all Sticky threads.

Hi

I've had the same problem but I've installed the full version and then reinstalled it as suggested. I'm on a fairly normal Windows XP system. Can anyone help me?

Thanks

Having a simmilar problem, i can't install ANY skinns at all from winamp.com, but i can install skinns from all other sites (i get some security warning popup, asking if im sure i want to install from this site and not to install unless from a trysted site) i hit yes but it still refused to install the skin, i tried everything i could think of but nothing worked...


But when i asked a friend to get the skin and then send it to me over MSN it worked just fine, i still got the warning but hiiting when i hit yes it worked...
