Transcoding - cannot find decoder

I'm trying to make .mp3 and mpeg-4's out of some .flac files in my Media Library, but when I selected Send to -> Format Converter and pick the encoding format I consistently get:

"Transcoding ...- cannot find decoder..." and it aborts.

Searching the forum for similar reports, I can't seem to find a definitive fix.

Info on my installation below....I hope there's sufficient info because the instructions on all the things we're supposed to roll up and attach are daunting.

Winamp Pro
My version: 5.623 (x86)
Running on: Windows XP (Service Pack 3)
Memory available: 3.00 GB

>> Reference FLAC Decoder v1.1.1(with ML support) [in_flac.dll]

You need to remove that old 3rd-party plugin and reinstall Winamp 5.623 to get the Nullsoft FLAC Decoder v2.5 back

(or use 7zip to manually extract in_flac.dll from the Winamp installer into the Winamp\Plugins folder).
