Hmm, strange....

It's not a 3rd-party plugin to blame then, because you don't have any.

With Winamp closed, move C:\Program Files\Winamp\msvcrt.dll into some backup folder elsewhere.

msvcrt.dll is no longer required and was replaced by nscrt.dll a fair few versions back.

Won't work??

You've moved msvcrt.dll into some backup folder elsewhere, as DJ Egg indicated to do?
Yet you still get this error? ...

The procedure entry point _except_handler4_common could not be located in the dynamic link library msvcrt.dll

Well, that's one for the books! How the heck can that error still be generated if there is no msvcrt.dll present to generate it?

Don't email or PM me concerning Winamp. Instead, either start a NEW TOPIC or post a REPLY in the appropriate thread in these forums. This will also benefit others who may have a similar question or problem. But before posting, please first Search the forums and read all FAQs and all Sticky threads.

As a guess maybe this...

Follow DJ Egg previous instructions, except this time move any possible msvcrt.dll file in the Winamp/Plugins folder.

After that, close and restart Windows.

Please do not PM me for tech support. Any request for tech support through PM will be ignored.

Yeah, wherever it is, whether it's in "C:\Program Files\Winamp" or "C:\Program Files\Winamp\Plugins", move msvcrt.dll out (move it to some backup folder, e.g.
My Documents\Backup, or just delete it if you want).

If the problem persists, then sorry, but I'm completely at a loss, because Winamp (whether winamp.exe or any of the default plugins) shouldn't even be looking for or loading msvcrt.dll (as I said, it was replaced by nscrt.dll quite a few versions back).

Note that there should be a copy of nscrt.dll in both the Winamp root and Plugins folders.

What's the version # of mscvrt.dll in your C:\Windows\system32 folder?

Mine's v7.0.2600.5512 (WinXP sp3)

How come's you've still got sp1? Or shouldn't I ask...?

[Edit] Hmm, your HJT log says it's WinXP sp2

OK. So you confirmed that you have SP2. But you never replied to Egg with the info he needs from you.
  1. Did you move (or delete) any and all instances of msvcrt.dll out of all Winamp folders and sub-folders?
  2. If so, do you still receive that error?
  3. Did you make sure that there are copies of nscrt.dll in both the Winamp root and Plugins folders?
None of the above needed/asked for info was supplied by you.

Hmm...

Can we see a HijackThis log please?
http://forums.winamp.com/showthread....d=161361#specs

I've tried searching for the error, and it seems as though the _except_handler4_common function is only present in the Vista version of msvcrt.dll

http://www.pcreview.co.uk/forums/thread-2915737-2.php

Have you maybe installed some Vista emulation software for WinXP?

Is there maybe a dwmapi.dll file in your Windows\system32 folder?
(that's part of Vista's Desktop Window Manager, which shouldn't be present on XP)


http://www.cantovirtual.com.br/dev-a...r4-common.html

What is the version # of your C:\Windows\system32\mswsock.dll file?
(mine is 5.1.2600.5512)


Other than all that, I'm still not entirely sure what could be causing the problem...

I've attached the HijackThis log

The dwmapi.dll is present in the system32 folder. The only emulation software that I have is Power ISO and Daemon tools... I think

mswsock.dll ->file version is 5.1.2600.2180 (xpsp_sp2_rtm.040803-2158)

Please try moving dwmapi.dll out of the Windows\system32 folder and into some backup folder elsewhere, eg. My Documents\Backup.

I'm not sure how that file got on your system, but it's only meant to be for Windows Vista, not XP.

If the problem still persists, then I'm possibly at a loss...

Some additional information:

I had the same problem which was resolved by removing dwmapi.dll from the system32 folder. I also am running Win XP and had no Vista emulator, BUT I recently installed Alcohol 120% emulator for disk image mounting. That must have added this useless dll.

Thank you guys,

holy crap, I had the same problem and the same solution worked for me too. Although I can't really pinpoint my blame to a specific program, I do suspect that Netlimiter 3 added this file to my system32 dir.

Can anyone here with the same problem confirm if they're using Netlimiter too?
