    Its still a bit buggy...
    Try starting winamp directly by double-clicking on winamp.exe (don't use the shortcuts).
    Or right-click on the shortcut -> properties -> Start in -> and remove the "\lang" from the path

      strange bug!
      i start winamp by a hotkey on the keyboard, but it point only to winamp.exe, not other!
      can you resolve this bug?

        When running the winamp from a shortcut on the shortcut bar on the taskbar the plugin config screen hangs when I attempt to add a new component.

        When running the Winamp from winamp.exe directly I get the following error, hopefully you can fix this

        See the end of this message for details on invoking
        just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

        Would it be possible to get the source code for this plugin? I'd only use it for my own personal project and if you want I could share anything I make with you.

        ************** JIT Debugging **************
        To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
        application or computer (machine.config) must have the
        jitDebugging value set in the section.
        The application must also be compiled with debugging

        For example:

        < jitDebugging="true" />

        When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
        will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
        rather than be handled by this dialog box.

              Wow, i was digging for help on this and got nothing.

              here is my thread:

              I have a question though.
              So is there in fact a plug in out there that i can use to output audio info to the serial port? The only piece i am missing is the winamp plugin. I am using the PIC16F871 i believe and have it ready.

              I am using the com port for commincations and about got it to where i can set the color through HyperTerminal. I just need a plugin to tell it what colors to output.

                Yes, there is a plugin which exactly does that
                But atm it only works with the old Chromoflex controller... If you want to use it with your own µC, there are 2 possibilities:
                * Just use the same protocol as the Chromoflex --> click
                * or implement your own protocol in the winamp-plugin

                Currently i'm not working on this plugin anymore... Maybe later when i have more time...

                  Seems like a problem with your rights...
                  Maybe it helps if you run it as administrator?

                  I thought about making it open-source... Maybe on sourceforge or so... But i'm not sure if there are really people who would like to improve it...

                    Thanks a lot for your work.
                    It's very appreciated.

                    An open source version would be very useful for some modifikations, e.g. implement another protocol.

                    Thanks in advance

                      Still waiting on that source code! Very interesting plugin!
