Problems with global hot keys

iv been having problems with the global hot keys. occasionaly they stop working, i cant set them to default and winamp just tells me unable to register keys... the only way iv been able to fix this is by uninstalling winamp, removing the directory, and installing winamp again.. iv done this quiet a few times so far.. this is what the error looks like



other than reinstalling winamp whenever this happens, is their a way to fix this?

It means something else has those keys registered. Do you have any other hotkey plugins installed? Any other hotkey programs running on your computer?

the only other plugins i have installed would be ipod and the "my IM plug-in" for msn . the other programs i can think of that run global hot keys are bs player and FRAPS. but those are all set to default too so neither should conflict with winamps defaults..

You are getting that message because probalby you are using multiple instances of Winamp (ie. you have executed Winamp twice...

If that is so then you need to start the second instance with a diffetent configuration file ( use /CONFIG="<filename>" in command line while executing winamp ) and set different hotkeys, or uncheck Allow multiple instances if you dont require that feature.
