"Gracenote tools not installed"

I scanned this forum for advice on the above error message popping when I attempt to auto-tag, which began when I upgraded to 5.5. I reinstalled, making sure that the appropriate options were selected, to no avail. I then completely uninstalled and reinstalled, also to no avail, but with the added headache of losing all of my song ratings.

My email for technical support has gone unanswered. Can anyone help me resolve this issue?

Please attach your List Of Plugins
http://forums.winamp.com/showthread....d=161361#specs

Did you install the Lite version maybe?
Gracenote MusicID only comes with the full version
(only the standard Gracenote CDDB comes with Lite).

Sorry, I didn't get that far down in the faq.

List is attached. Should be anything but what it comes with as I clean installed.

Hmm... strange.
The list looks ok to me and all the required gracenote libraries are there.

Although the installer should have done this, try the following...

Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt*

Type in the following:

regsvr32 "c:\program files\winamp\plugins\gracenote\CddbMusicIDWinamp.dll"

Hit Enter

If required, repeat for CDDBControlWinamp.dll & CDDBUIWinamp.dll


* Vista users should open the Command Prompt via right-click -> Run as administrator
(Win2k/XP users can just open it normally via left-click)

When I attempt to do what you suggest, I get an error message on executing saying "DLL Register Server in (c:\ ...) failed. Return code was 0x80020009."

?

Hmm...

Is there any security software running which prevents programs from writing to the registry?
(eg. Spybot S+D's TeaTimer)

Maybe a HijackThis log will show something?

Have you tried reinstalling, or even a clean install?

By auto tag and I will try to configure each separate track in the classic mode I''m missing at the right sight the list by conductor , orchestra and Winamp ask to fill in the name of the ensemble or orchestra while I had done it already.

Removed Winamp 5.551 total including the register values
with Revo uninstaller restarted my computer (Using Vista Home Premium )tried to install version 5.54 (Dutch) and the same problem occurs.
While before I had no any trouble ripping my CD''s using
GraceNote or Sonic

Sorry haven't revisited the forums here to respond. I appear to have some registry corruption or some process having taken ownership of registry keys related to winamp data that's preventing any updating of those keys. I can't even change the permissions. Consequently, I'm doing a full reinstall, which is sounds more dire than it really is as I try to do that with some regularity and have slipstreamed installs and image backups to make the process relatively simple.

Unsure if something else took control of the keys, or if I have corruption, but this is the easiest route out for me.

If the problem persists post-reinstall, I'll come back and query again.

Thanks for the help.
