Ratings won't save

I'm using Windows 8.1 with latest version of Winamp and my ratings of presets simply won't save. I was wondering if there are any workarounds for this? Should I set special permissions for presets folder or what?

The ratings are stored in the .milk files, in the second line "frating=..."
Yes, you need permission to write files in the preset folder.

knew there was something uac related that I'd missed not sorting out with the 5.66x release (though not hard considering the blur it all was). will sort out a patch for that as we really should have done it years ago. so like is mentioned above, to rate you'd need to run Winamp elevated or change folder permissions or disable uac (not really recommended).
