Winamp won't run after upgrade to Windows 8 Pro

Long time fan and user of winamp, since the early years, and I have never had any major issues (except for the playlist generator crash, but I've learnt to live without it).

But yesterday I upgraded from Win 7 Ultimate to Win 8 Pro and got everything to finally work except winamp. I have tried re-installing, complete uninstall and re-install (user files, plugins, everything erased) and yet to no avail. I have tried compatability modes, administrator mode, compatability in administrator and still zilch. When I execute the program it pops up in the task manage for a brief second or two and then disappears.

I really hope this is a simple fix because I have searched the entire forum and the interweb and have come to the conclusion that I might be the only one with this issue, so anyone have any ideas as to what the problem may be? (Or just solution?)

Thanks in advance!
