How do I update WinAmp Pro?

I have Winamp Pro 5.1, according to my version history.
I just learned there is a version 5.13.
How do I upgrade to the new version? and am I supposed to be notified whenever a newer version is released?
Thanks for any help

Send a message via Yahoo to rob311fan
go to Winamp 5.13 Player Download this link will always have the latest winamp release on it. just under the free and pro buttons there is a link that says To upgrade or re-download Pro, click here. click that and install over whatever version you are using with winamp closed. it won't make you reenter your reg stuff

also there is a box in the general preferences (right click winamp -> options -> preferences -> general preferences)if check marked and you are connected to the internet you should get an alert when you start winamp telling you about the upgrade

I'm not from the Winamp's support team but I've always installed the new version just over an old version & that always worked quite fine so far.

hi! i've problems to update my winamp pro 5.572 version to the version which you can find on the homepage http://www.winamp.com/media-player/en under "Already own Winamp and need to upgrade?" i've installed the version 5.581 and it works allready but i can't give in my registration number... i've bought winamp on 2010-07-13.
and i can't believe the registrationnumber doesn't work anymore.

You should be able to update without having to enter the reg. number. Are the Pro features working? If the reg needs to be reentered, it can be done in Winamp Preferences...
Winamp > Ctrl+P (for Preferences) > Winamp Pro (at the top of the Prefs tree)

Still having a issue with the reg key?

Please do not PM me for tech support. Any request for tech support through PM will be ignored.
