[access-uk] Re: Winamp and Windows Vista

Hi Chris,

I saw the following (below my signature) posted to a Winamp
list on 2nd November, so I guess it's pretty up to date.

Winamp has a few problems with Vista at the moment and if
you install with the normal options then when start you will
get an error message.

This is due to the Sonic CD Burning/Ripping part of winamp.
So when installing make sure to disable this part from the
installable options and it will solve the problem

Subject: [access-uk] Winamp and Windows Vista

Hi all,
First of all, sorry for the cross posting. I need urgent
help, please, see 
below.
I had major problems using Winamp with Windows Vista such
that I had to 
uninstall it and use Windows Media Player for now. However,
I don't like 
Windows Media Player; it's too cluttered, and not as
keyboard friendly as 
Winamp. The major problems I had were:
1. Every time I close Winamp, I am asked to send an error
report to 
Microsoft. This did not happen on my old XP machine.
2. Some dialogues, such as the Winamp Preferences dialogue
box and Jump to 
Time dialogue box, are not as accessible as they were on my
old XP machine.
I've tried to use both the modern and classic skins, with
the same results.
This was using Winamp 5.5.
I am asking, therefore, has anyone successfully used Winamp
on a Windows 
Vista machine? If not, can you suggest an alternative player
that is both 
keyboard friendly and not so cluttered?
Thanks in advance for the help.
