In Win8, filetype associations can only be made via the Default Programs control panel.
We still need to disable the Winamp Setup > Set Filetype Associations page for Win8
(or at least change it to match what we've done with Prefs > File Types, where it just has a link to open Default Programs CP instead).

As for the issue at hand, I'm not rightly sure, but maybe DrO can offer some further assistance/shed more light...?

Yes, it's certainly worth trying to run Winamp once in admin mode.

If that doesn't work, then I would start by disabling ml_disc.dll (CD Rip & Burn interface) to see if that's preventing the startup
(there's been one or two other similar reports).

Go to the "C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\Plugins" folder
Rename ml_disc.dll to
(first, make sure 'hide extensions' isn't enabled in Folder Options Control Panel > View tab)

Does Winamp open now?

If no, you can re-enable ml_disc.dll and we'll need to look at other possible causes...
