I get the same error with WinAmp 5.5.
I did a clean install a couple of times, and did some testing with various plug-in configurations and I can say with some certainty that the problem is either in the playlist generator plug-in or in the media library plug-in itself. The likely cause is the inability of the plug-in(s) to handle a large amount on data (or precisely, to write a final data backup on WinAmp close quickly enough).
This can be observed with a fresh install with no data in the media library. I never had any errors on close in that case. But when I add my media, the error occurs in every close.
Granted, my media library is a bit larger than the regular user would have (think 2k+ albums) so it is probable that the root cause of the error is not poorly written code, but a code that wasnâ€™t intended to handle that many items.
And, before anybody asksâ€¦ Iâ€™m running a high end machine with plenty of RAM and no Vista, so hardware/OS isnâ€™t the issue.
Well, it seams that itâ€™s definitely the Playlist Generator. For some reason the plug-in just stopped working (cant initialize plug-in error) but on the up side, thereâ€™s no more error on winamp exit. Itâ€™s a pity actually, as I rather like the Playlist Generator plug-in, but it seams Iâ€™ll have to wait for aversion that can handle my library size.
