Visualization Window Can't be Closed

I clicked on the "Open Visualization" tab, and the window opened "black." It pushed the other windows down screen as it was supposed to. There was no 'visualization' in the window, and there's no way to close the window.
"Detach Visualizer" doesn't detach. It looks like a little tab or window (it's about 1/4" x 1/2") was pasted over the "close visualizer" button in the upper right-hand corner of the visualizer window; I can't click on it to close.
CTL-K doesn't open the visualization preferences. CTL-SHFT-K doesn't end the visualization.
I was running Winamp 5.57 and thought a good upgrade/reinstall might help. I upgraded to 5.61, same problem.
I'm running "Winamp Modern" skin.
OS is Windows/Server 2003/SP2.
Anyone have any clues?

I found it!!!

This probably needs to be a bug report...

If you're using skin "WinAmp Modern," and click the Video/Vis button, then click "Detach Visualizer," the window does NOT detach, and a 'shield' pops up over the Video/Vis button. The program must assume that the window has detached properly!

But it hasn't, and you can't re-attach it and you can't clidk the Video/Vis button to make it go away.


Go to menu OPTIONS / WINAMP MODERN and Uncheck "Detach Vis Window." This restores the Video/Vis button and you can close the window.


Running Windows Server 2003 std. edition/SP2 and WinAmp 5.61.

This bug still exists two years later.

and following the steps doesn't replicate the issue (at least not on current OSes - i don't have Win2003 available to test on), hence there is no fix for the issue.
