Winamp crash in Windows Vista

I just installed my desktop with win vista home premium and i'm using the latest version of winamp 5.53. The problem is everytime i run winamp there was an error message appeared some sort of like windows has stopped working and i have to close the programme. When i checked the problem it would tell that the application was crash due to things that i don't know. I have tried so many times to reinstall winamp and my audio driver. For your info, i'm using Realtek Audio HD v.188. I would be glad if anybody can help me to solve this matter.

Winamp in Vista

I am about to purchase a new Vista PC when I read the post that Winamp can crash in Vista. Thanks to this alert, I now eagerly await advice from members to help me decide if I should take the "Vista" plunge.

My present Winamp configuration is as follows:

Winamp 5.531 with DFX 8;
Compaq Presario Dual Core PC with AC-97 onboard audio;
PC is digitally connected using coaxial cable to Bose Home theatre System, i.e. SPDIF out from PC to SPDIF in on Bose.

The new PC I have in mind is also a Compaq Presario but comes with Dual Core Quad processor and ALC888S onboard audio. It will be configured the same way as my existing setup.

Please advise whether Winamp as in the above configuration will work the same in Vista.

Many thanks.

Winamp works fine on Vista sp1 for me.

Confirm a clean install with no 3rd-party plugins

We had some reports of a crash with some older version of WindowBlinds,
which required Winamp to be added to WB's exclusion list...

Interesting on the WB thing, I hadn't tried excluding WA from it tho I am using the latest WB6 and WA 5.52 runs just fine guess another install of 5.531 wouldn't hurt.

WinAmp added to WindowBlinds 6 exclusion list, no more crashing at startup.

Thank you DJ Egg
