Winamp crash

Windows 8 Pro, desktop PC, x64. Crash occurs during application startup.

Crashing stack is as follows:

Last call on the stack is to a gen_lyrics library probably looking at it:

I can share the dump over dropbox if anyone from Winamp is interested to look at it, although it looks like a lyrics plugin crash to me.

The issue is resolved by removing the gen_lyrics.dll from its location:
D:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\Plugins\gen_lyrics.dll

Winamp then loads fine. Winamp module information:

there's nothing we can do officially other than stating to do things to block the loading of / automatically removing that plug-in (which keeps coming up as a problem with people's installs) as we cannot fix code issues in the plug-in as it's a 3rd party item.

other than checking for an update of it, not using it is likely the only solution.

also you're using an older version of Winamp (current version is v5.65 at the time of reply).

Thanks DrO. I have only one plug-in installed in WinAmp and that is SongFreaks online service. I'm not sure if that is related to this issue because it just makes use of the browser built-in.

Is gen_lyrics.dll part of WinAmp or does it come installed afterwards by another plug-in?

the SongFreaks online service is completely different from the plug-in and would not have any effect on such things (and technically it's not counted as a plug-in in the true sense of the meaning in the Winamp world).

gen_lyrics.dll is not an official plug-in from Winamp (is why i referred to it as a 3rd party item) and would not have been installed by any official Winamp installer i.e. one from winamp.com (if installed from somewhere else then if things have been modified to include it then sadly there's little we can do to stop such things). so it would have had to have been installed at some point by someone (you maybe?)
