your old working setup do the trick of restoring Winamp to working conditions?
If I had used the Windows Sound Control Panel to correct the default sound output device before starting Winamp, it probably would have worked.

Instead I started Winamp, after the 2004 update, before re-selecting the Windows default sound output device I need to use. I use the DirectSound ouput plug-in and it's configuration data for the sound device is stored in winamp.ini (in an indirect manner based on the Windows default), so it was pointing to the wrong device. Seeing that the wrong device was selected in the DirectSound configuration Device tab reminded me that I needed to correct the Windows default sound output device.

So to keep from shutting down Winamp, fixing the Windows default and restarting Winamp, I used the device tab to select the proper sound device for my system to get Winamp working. Later after I finished using Winamp, I used the Windows Sound Control Panel to correct the default sound output device.
