5.572 crash when runnig multiple instance on XP

can anyone else reproduce this?

1. open winamp, let it scan, see your ML.
2. open a second instance of winamp.

at this point, it opens, but the second ML never comes into view. if u click play, it'll play something, but then becomes unresponsive. eventually it all crashes or you have to end it.

just me?

Same problem as OP

I'm having the exact same issues as the OP. The media library window fails to load in the second instance of Winamp and it becomes non-responsive as soon as I play anything in it. This occurs on two of my pcs - one is XP and one Windows 7. Both instances of Winamp will play audio. I tried switching sound cards with no improvement. I have run two instances of Winamp many times previously on the XP machine with no issues (earlier version of Winamp). Seems like a resource conflict of some type. Just a guess. The second instance takes a long time to load and is slow to respond to other commands. Both machines have plenty of horsepower for this task.

Same problem, winamp 5.601, Vista SP2 x64, 6gb ram, i7-920.
the second instance responded VERY slow to the point that Vista thought it had stopped working and asked me what to do.

what an arrogant thing to say, esp for a noob.

i ALREADY linked this thread in previous "offical" report threads, egg/benski is well aware of it, they don't need it in every new one; but note that you DON'T have to post at all in one of those official report links, esp if you already have a track record in the forums. if they didn't want to let users create threads in the bug report forum, they wouldn't.

this is an old, long standing issue they are well aware of, what else is relevant?
