Default Crashes when trying to install Winamp 5.53

I have WIN98SE

I've been trying to install WinAmp 5.53 or 54. in WIN98SE, using 3
different installation files, and every time it crashes on
OleMainThreadWndName.

Two of the files, one downloaded 6 months ago, maybe not from the same
site I used today, have the exact same name, and same length
winamp5531_full_emusic-7plus-en-us.exe 8,990,072
and one dl'd today after first crashes is
winamp5541_full-en-us.exe 8,981,984

I'm using some older version of Norton Crash Guard which works pretty
well. Often the Revive option works perfectly but in these cases,
clicking on Revive gets a messsage that I shouldn't bother trying to
revive the named crashed program.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

According to their website the recommend Windows2000 sp4 as the minimum
operating system
so it very well may not be supported by Win98

There is probably a win98 version here


http://www.oldversion.com/program.php?n=winamp

i SHOULD have said that I found all these versions by searching on
Winamp win98 download, and at least one, maybe all of them, listed
win98 as a supported OS. This is just so you'll know I'm not stupid.

However, A After I poste, I also found under "itunes Windows 98
search results" a link for Win Media Player 11, which I alrready know
won't run on win98.
B see below.

There is probably a win98 version here

http://www.oldversion.com/program.php?n=winamp


A great page. Thank you. Would be greater if it said which version
ran on which OSes, but it's fair that I have to do *some* work.

So I figured I'd start with the last version of v4, and if that didn't
work, the last version of v3. Aha, elsewhere it says there was no
version 4.

OK, I went to the winamp page and found a version history. But it
only had subversions of version 5!!! Search on "98" And suprising to
me, there is reference to win98 and ME in ver5.32, that they have
fixed the CD burning in this version. But your url above didn't go
later than ver5.24, so I dl'd that and it installed fine. I don't
know what I'm missing from 5.5, but it's not likely something I need.
(Well, I would like a second way to burn CD's, that 5.32 has, but
there's no big need.)

I only want to play the radio! WPFW.org, which didn't work at their
end with WMP, and they say the Real Media file is not available now.

So thanks a lot.


OK, so I searched for v5.32 specifically, and found that, for free,
and maybe I'll install it later.

First off, I never accused you of being stupid G

I'd go right to Old Version and try some out.

If v5.32 does not work

go back to 4 or 3 ???

Old Version should have them...but if you go to WinAmp's home page
they may no longer have the older versions avail for download

RealPlayer v.10.5 (32-bit) runs well under Win98SE.
So does Windows Media Player v.9
So does IrfanView v.4.10 (supplied with many codecs.)

Of course not. You're too polite. But you might have thought it.

I'd go right to Old Version and try some out.

If v5.32 does not work


Version 5.24 seems to work fine. It installed, and played Listen Live
for the radio station I wanted to listen to.

V5.32 probably works, and if I ever need a second way to burn CDs or
have some other winamp desire, I'll install it.

go back to 4 or 3 ???


There is no version 4. They said that since the new version combines
the best features of 2 and 3, they added them together to get 5. And
a couple other reaosns to skip ver 4.

Old Version should have them...but if you go to WinAmp's home page
they may no longer have the older versions avail for download


I couldn't find them, and I don't think thye're there. I don't get
it. Eudora, or Agent, or both have all their old versions available
on their respective webpages, and Winamp is in most cases free, so
what have they got to lose?

No...

I've heard it often enough:
There is no such thing as a dumb question.
But there are plenty of dumb answers.

I've been know to give a few G

Version 5.24 seems to work fine. It installed, and played Listen Live

Glad you found a version that works with Win98!!!!

yeah version 3 was a stinking pile of poo and slow as hell,
they stopped being a music player and started to be a 'media player'
with it. so everyone continued to use ver2 instead. (I stopped use it then)
back then WinAmp was the music player everyone used...
I remember their 3+2= 5 :-)
(meaning it was based on ver2 but with ver3's features )


Anyone knows a good simple opensource nonskinned musicplayer?
(that don't do movies, only music. perhaps something similar
to foobar2000 version 0.8 ?)

That just made me think of something!

VLC is a media player that seems to be able to handle most any video
format...
it'll even handle .vob directly without needing a conversion.
