Winamp force closes itself after 5 seconds. Every time.

Windows 10

I just updated a few minutes ago, and now WinAmp will not work. It will load up, and start populating the windows below, and then it just closes. No errors, no dialogs. Nothing.

If I launch the program by doing a "Open With" in windows explorer on a mp3 file, it will play for a couple seconds before stopping and closing.

Tried opening in "WinAmp Safe Mode" and it was no different.

After Winamp closes look in the Task Manager's Apps and Background processes to see if there are any Winamp processes still listed. If there are, right-click on each one and select the "End task" command.

Sometimes after a crash or if Winamp doesn't shutdown properly, a partial process is left running in the foreground and/or background. This prevents Winamp from restarting properly.
