ps. for the Vista skins problem, another workaround is:

You could also try changing the Skin dir to a writable location...

Create a new folder in e.g.


Now copy all the files & folders from the %ProgramFiles%\Winamp\Skins dir to this new one.

Then go to:

Winamp -> Prefs -> Skins -> Set skins directory

and point it to this new folder.

Saving & loading skins should now work as normal again.

Another workaround is to edit the permissions of the Winamp\Skins folder.
Further info/details here.

But yeah...

1) The first workaround from above (right-click -> save target as, etc) is probably easier, and

2) this issue does need addressing... :-)
