Did the Winamp crash reporter show any sign of running? i.e. would have been a small window with Winamp branding and a moving progress bar.

As it seems that it has not, then we'll need to go with an alternative way to try to get a crash report. So if you can follow the following procedure then that would be much appreciated.

First thing is to get ProcDump ( and extract procdump.exe from the archive.

Would suggest making a C:\dumps folder first and then putting procdump.exe in there.

Then do Windows Key + R and enter cmd.exe which should open a command-line window.

Enter cd c:\dumps and press return.

Then enter (or copy+paste should work) procdump.exe -e 1 -f "" -x c:\dumps "C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\winamp.exe" and press return.

That should start procdump and have it start Winamp and hopefully will generate a dmp file in C:\dumps.

If it does, zip up the file and either upload to a file sharing site or if it's only a few 100 KB when compressed, you should be able to attach it a post in the thread. Then hopefully from that i might be able to work out what's going on and fix the issue.
