Can only download certian skins for 5.03....

I downloaded 5.03 today, and I ran into a problem, I can only download few skins from the site, that are 5.03 compatable. When I try do download a skin it sets it to the classic skin. I've tried uninstalling and removing anything winamp from my computer then reinstalling, and still run into the same problem. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

ARe you sure you downloaded the Full version? Otherwise, it won't have support for modern/freeform skins.

Did you download the Lite version by chance? The Lite version does not support Modern skins which may be the reason you only download "certain skins". Try downloading Winamp Full.

every skin I've clicked except, Simpsons, Mercury, Clear New, and Machine Gun dont work. So take any link you have and click away... It shows it dl'n but just makes my skin to classic and doesnt list it as downloaded.

Go to C:\program files\winamp\plugins
If you don't see gen_ff.dll, modern skin support isn't installed and you need to make sure you install it when you install Winamp.

If you go to the skin browser are they listed there or just not downloaded at all? Are you using a third party download manager/accelerator? If so try temporarily disabling it prior to downloading skins. System specs would be helpful.

Have you tried the alternative download method?...
1. Right-click on the download link
2. select 'Save target as'
3. download/save the skin to the WA5 skins folder (usually C:\Program Files\Winamp\Skins)
Example: C:\Program Files\Winamp\Skins\SkinName.wal (or SkinName.wsz if downloading a classic skin)
Next time you are using Winamp 5, select the skin there.
