I've never noticed an "update notice" in Winamp(or it never worked). http://forums.winamp.com/forumdisplay.php?f=8 Click that and it's the first sticky...

Options > General preferences > check for newer versions of winamp at startup.

Jesus loves you [yes, you] so much, he even died for you so that you will not need to die, but live forever

you're not going to be notified unless there is an update and as there's not been one for over half a year then you're obviously not going to see one if you're on 5.63.

if not then maybe you've got some firewall / AV which is blocking the requests to the download servers.

and if you've manually updated within the first few weeks of a new version coming out, you wouldn't get the update notice either.

the update flag is enabled for 5.63, so that points more towards the second part of my reply above.

Aside what's been suggested, the only thing I could say is to do a complete clean install, which is a pain, but it usually solves most problems that don't seem solvable any other way.

Clean install directions are on the second post of this thread, the third line down:

Ahh, If what DrO's diagnosis is correct, then my fix won't work.
