Winamp 5.6 only installs classic skin.

Winamp 5.601 will only let me choose and/or install the classic skin when I go to install the program. I've seen everyone have the modern and bento skin, yet, twice now when I've gone to install Winamp, the only option of skin I ever get is Classic.

I had to reinstall a clean version of Windows 7 because of me making major upgrades to my computer, so this, I believe, is the first full version of Winamp I've installed since then. Thus, no other skins were installed.

Should the Bento and Modern skins be available to me at install? What's going on here if they are? Where and how do I get them if they aren't?

This is something that needs to be enabled in the Installer.

Make sure you have 'Modern Skin Support' checked in the installer 'Choose Components' page.

Re-install Winamp > 'Choose Components' page > 'User Interface Extensions' > 'Modern Skin Support'

Not the most obvious, but should be enabled by default I think.
