Attach your List of Plugins and then we can tell you which old plugin is calling/requiring nscrt.dll

I'm 99.9% certain that nothing in the default 5.571 installation uses or requires it.
I've just tried to install the latest winamp.
This is a clean XP Pro SP3 install, never had winamp installed before

The installer downloaded is winamp5571_full_bundle_emusic-7plus_en-us.exe
It can't be started due to a missing nscrt.dll

So as I see it, there is no way, this is not related to the default 5.571 installation, as I have no 3rd party plugins or skins. Only what's included in the installation.

After placing this file in winamp dir I can start the app correctly, however attempting to access preferences, it crashes..
Same thing goes when trying to play any mp3 file.

All I really need is a reliable mediaplayer for my audiobooks. I've been using media player classic for a long time, but I really like winamp..

However if winamp doesn't work from a default installation, then I can't use it.. Simple as that
