Migrating backed up Winamp play counts from XP to Windows 7?

I've just migrated from Windows XP to Windows 7 and my backed up play counts are not being recognized in Windows 7 like they were in XP. I backed up the entire "ml" directory from the plugins directory along with gen_ml.ini and gen_mud.ini. I copied and pasted these over as needed and Winamp isn't picking up on it like it was before. Any ideas what changes, if necessary, that I need to do?

void BlueWater() {water.color=blue; while(GameRunning) {if (fox.pos == InBlueWater) {fox.air--; FoxDrown(fox.air);} else {fox.air=1800; fox.flags = WantsToGetWet; } WaitFrames(1); }} // My top favorite thing in 2D Sonic (as C)

Someone on Facebook answered this. Windows 7 has all user-saved data not in the Program Files directory like it was before but the application data directory. Simply copy and paste my backup there and it worked. Search for %Appdata%, go to Winamp, plugins, and you'll find the directory where the backup needs to be pasted into.

Back when I used XP (and before that, Windows 98), this info was always in the Program Files directory. Windows 7 changed this and I wasn't aware of it.

void BlueWater() {water.color=blue; while(GameRunning) {if (fox.pos == InBlueWater) {fox.air--; FoxDrown(fox.air);} else {fox.air=1800; fox.flags = WantsToGetWet; } WaitFrames(1); }} // My top favorite thing in 2D Sonic (as C)
