Winamp3 not saving my settings on startup!

I don't know if this goes here or the computer forum so if it needs to be moved go ahead I dare ya

The problem is with winamp3, everytime I restart and open Winamp3, all my preferances go back to default. Is there some save function that I'm missing? I'm running XP pro. Thank you.

BTW, Winamp3 isn't really worth an upgrade. The good things are that it has some new skins that look pretty nice and it has a feature that keeps a bunch of playlists open at the same time to make it easy to switch between them. Thats all I found thats worth sharing. It now plays video which is alright I guess. If my above problem is not solved I'm gonna downgrade.

You would be better off posting this in the winamp forums if you are looking for the answer.

It's new software and with most new software it has bugs...keep in mind you are complaining about something that is completely free

In the meantime if you want to save your settings just make sure you close winamp completely before shutting down your computer.

Thanks Palebluedot. I'll just make sure I shut down winamp before restarting, hopefully that'll work.
