This shouldn't surprise you really. I made a clear point ages ago, why it has been removed and that I provide an own installer for it.
Nobody maintains the sidecar, the addon produced a couple of issues in the past and I was tired to confirm, if it's working with newer Winamp builds and I was bored to request a Playlist Sidecar update, when I get no answer. Nobody from the internal team ever wanted to test the thing, so I was the only one, who had to install it again and again for each WA release. Also the thing wasn't working on my own install when I tested it the last time.
Along with the issues, the thing isn't and never was an essential feature.
The addon was written by Martin, contact him for updates, contact him if the thing isn't working and contact him, if you want to have a new feature. As for my part I'm done with it and never will touch it again.
Though, I've spent a couple of time to provide a full working installer, which is, unlike Martin's old installer, able to uninstall the thing without breaking the skin. So you have the same install functionality, which you had in Essentials Pack. If it's working for you or not, nobody can say, the only thing I can say for sure is, that even if it still would be part of the EP, nobody would update it, so if it's broken, it's simply broken.
If you cannot live with it, use an old build of the Essentials Pack, like DrO said.
