As I did not set up Windows 7 on the machine I am running Winamp/Browseamp on I have not got as strong grip on the process as I would like...

...but I think I am logging on  as administrator. For some reason it   still makes a difference if I go on to run Winamp as administrator by right clicking the .exe or short cut file.

I also created a msu playlist and used it to seed  the winamp.m3u and Winamp.m3u8 files in the "C:\Program Files\Winamp directory before starting Winamp.

In my case Browseamp was definitely responsible for the exit crashing -  before I started using 'run as administrator' I ended  the crashing  by removing the browseamp plugin - perhaps the crash happens because on exit Browseamp tries to write to a file for which it does not have permission.

I have now  got the latest version of Winamp (5.572) with a paths.ini file running on Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit

Between the asterisks  is my paths.ini file
*******************************************
[Winamp]
inidir={26}\Winamp

m3udir="C:\Program Files\Winamp"
*******************************************

I have also discovered that the default file permissions could be causing a problem when Browseamp is added to Winamp.

I have not tracked down which particular file(s) are causing the problem but when I run Winamp/Browseamp as administrator as far as I can tell everything works as expected.  If I do not run as administrator  playlists do not work as expected and Winamp crashes on exit.

Coincidentally I ran into the problem about  48 hours before you posted - which is why I was looking at this forum and saw your post.

Since my last post I have installed Winamp 5.35 and after deleting paths.ini I can see the playlist (I designed  my own skin and as it is for a cell phone I did not set it up to display artwork).

However, deleting paths.ini in more recent versions of Winamp sends Winamp into a loop when starting it.

Having had more time to look at the problem my guess is that the location of the playlist file is hard coded into Browseamp but later versions of Winamp has changed the default location.

I have not had a chance to try it yet but my guess is the best solution is to modify the paths.ini file so that newer versions of Winamp saves  the playlist file to where Browsamp  expects to find it - the following thread in the Shoutcast forum explains how >

I have just  had  the same problem with the playlist loop after installing under Ultimate.

I uninstalled Winamp and Browseamp, deleted the Winamp directory and files which were still left.
Installed an older version of Winamp - 5.1 - reinstalled Browseamp and the playlist  worked. I can not remember for sure but I do not think I deleted paths.ini (In the past I  have deleted paths.ini when doing an install under Vista).

Older versions of Winamp available here >

I  also  installed  Edcast to stream the audio over the web and I continued to get bad behavior when exiting Winamp until I installed an older version of Edcast which I  got direct from the Edcast site.
