Monkey's Audio [*ape] on Windows 7

Never had any problem with the support for .ape files on Winamp, but now that I'm on Windows 7 I've found one. I started today installing the Monkey's Audio plug-in in order to make my .ape files playable on WINAMP 5.572. The plug-in I'm trying to install is the lastest versin of the official one, "Winamp Pluging.exe" (contained into the lastest Monkey's Audio pack "MAC_406.exe" hosted on the official site).

On the installation the next message appears:

code:
"Couldn't open the file

C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\\Plugins\in_APE.dll

for writting"



Surprised with it, because on the O.S. I was using before (XP SP3 x86-x64) I never saw this error. I've seen that on that path, there's no "in_APE.dll", so I tried to do a download of it, pasted it on the path, and tried to do the install again. The dll "in_APE.dll" vanishes...

Any ideas? thanks in advance for the support !

Please post a list of your installed plugins. So I can see, if the plugin was correctly installed.

Otherwise in_ape is a 3rd party plugin and not supported in these forums. For propper support you have to contact the author of the plugin.

Excuse the delay Koopa.

I uninstalled the Winamp I was using and instaled the 5.581, then installed the APE official plug-in. The installation of the plug-in was quite fast, and now in_APE.dll is into the Winamp\Plugins folder, but the .ape files are still not playable.

I've done the list you suggested me:

Listing of installed input plugins (in_*) and the relevent apis which they indicate that they
support to allow you to see how well the plugin is likely to work with different Winamp builds.

Note: This is a best guess at how well the plugins shown should work with Winamp and until
you actually use the plugins with Winamp in normal use you will not otherwise know.


A * means the plugin has support for metadata queries on a file (2.9+)
A # means the plugin supports saving modified metadata via Winamp apis (2.9+)
A % means the plugin supports the unified file info dialog and a '%+' shows it adds its own pages (5.5+)
A || means the plugin supports the api_decoder used for transcoding/replaygain/etc (5.34+)

A || means the plugin supports the api_decoder used for transcoding/replaygain/etc (5.34+)
and '(Seekable)' indicates extra support in processing of audio data via api_decoder

A {} around a symbol means the plugin supports the unicode version of the api

Summary:

'One for Nunz' found 17 installed input plugins in 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\Plugins'
94% (16) of the plugins installed provide the needed 5.x api ("winampGetExtendedFileInfo(..)
or winampGetExtendedFileInfoW(..)") to allow the formats provided by the plugins to work with
most of Winamp 5.x's features (more important with higher versions).



Thanks for all your support Koopa.

I know this is an ancient thread but I found my way here because of the OP's exact problem when I tried to install the APE plug-in. Others may find the following info useful:

The problem is that Windows 7 requires administration rights to write a file into
C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\\Plugins\
I simply changed the location to install the plugin to my desktop which worked without issue, then copied the "in_ape.dll" file into C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\\Plugins\ while logged in as administrator. Worked fine!

I also imagine that if one were to right click on "Winamp Plugin.exe" and run as administrator, that would install it directly into the Winamp plugin directory as well.

OT kind of, but why use ape at all?

i use mp3 and for lossless m4a ALAC. mp3 is universal and m4a ALAC is nearly universal. both are well supported by windows, apple/mac/ios, mp3tag, winamp, and so on.
