I decided to upgrade a working Winamp installation to the latest version but now it crashes right after loading the main window.

I've tried resetting plugins and winamp.ini to no avail.

I'm running Windows 7 64-bit with onboard sound (Asus P5K SE) and a Radeon 5450.

Here's the log from event viewer:

Faulting application name: winamp.exe, version: 5.6.2.3173, time stamp: 0x4e1b6f92

I tried an older version as well:

Faulting module name: unknown, version: 0.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x00000000

Any ideas what could be wrong?

Ok, so i thought i had disabled the old plugins but haven't. The problem was with gen_mp3cue.dll. Now everything is back to normal.

I was sorting the plugin folder by date to remove the old ones, but for some reason winamp reset the date of all plugins. So i did a clean install and winamp worked. So I started placing the old plugins one by one until winamp crashed, right after i placed gen_mp3cue.dll
