Winamp crashes after opening

After downloading the new beta version of Winamp yesterday, it immediately crashed right after opening and gave me an error report message.

Tried installing it again today with a different theme and it's giving me the same thing.

Does that Outlook error come up at the same time or is it unrelated?

Well I haven't seen anything like that before, all i can suggest is the following:

Uninstall Winamp using the facility in Windows.
Go to C:\Users\<username>\Appdata\Roaming and delete the Winamp folder there.
Reinstall Winamp into it's OWN FOLDER, ie override the target on the install program to C:\Winamp.

See if that makes any difference.

previous versions of winamp

I love winamp! But I tried to download the official new version 5 and it crashes when I try to add my media library.

Can someone provide a link to the most recent previous version? Never had this problem before
