  • Winamp 5.58 Crash

    OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64
    PC: Dell XPS M1730
    Issue: Crash On Load

    Detailed Issue:
    I just installed Winamp 5.581 (Free) on Windows 7 Ultimate x64 and it installed fine. However, after the installation finished and I chose to launch winamp after the installer closes, the window that came up labelled "Winamp Setup" crashed. Windows was unable to provide a solution as to how this crash occured. Upon attempting to run winamp.exe again nothing happened. I check the current running processes list in the Windows Task Manager and winamp.exe was not running. I attempted to run winamp.exe again and it still did not execute. I restarted my computer and ran winamp.exe again and it loaded the "Winamp Setup" window again and instantly crashed.

    Any valid assistance is greatly appreciated.

    use the standalone version of One for Nunz as detailed in to produce a list of your install - sounds like a broken 3rd party plug-in.

      If you see `Loading test failed' against an entry then there is a likely chance that the
      plugin will not be correctly loaded by Winamp (this is often due to a missing dependancy).
      Visit for an app which allows you to see what is missing.

      I download and executed Dependency Walker and opened winamp.exe with it.

      Error: At least one module has an unresolved import due to a missing export function in an implicitly dependent module.
      Error: Modules with different CPU types were found.
      Warning: At least one delay-load dependency module was not found.
      Warning: At least one module has an unresolved import due to a missing export function in a delay-load dependent module.

      Cannot find specified module: IESHIMS.DLL

      I'll download IESHIMS.DLL from DLL-Files and regsvr32 it.

        from that list, i'd disable gen_mlt.dll and out_xf.dll (rename them to and and see if that works.

        also i wouldn't get ieshims.dll, Dependency Walker will often show some missing dlls which the OS will map in as required when other dlls are loaded.

          Thanks. Renaming those 2 files did work.

          Out of curosity, what did those 2 files do?

            one seems to be an output plugin (probably not the cause) and from what i can see gen_mlt may be a now playing plug-in but not sure what service (though there's been issues with a similar plug-in for msn so might be the same thing).
