    Question Problem: Winamp don't start from Roadrunner

    Yesterday I formatted my carpc harddisk system partition and restored with a fresh winxp installation. I saved all the roadrunner stuff before to clean partition so, after restoring operating system, I've simply copied my roadrunner folder into the same place it was before. All seems to work ok but winamp! Winamp plays correctly if I use it outside of roadrunner.When I start roadrunner it seems to be unable to launch winamp and nothing winamp related works, nor controls, nor playlist... I've double checked all the paths and all is right so now I'm going mad! I never experienced similar problems and the winamp setup was the simpler part ever to setup on roadrunner. Maybe I'm doing something wrong??

    this is probably a stupid question, but how do you register it?

    from a command prompt
    regsvr32 c:\program files\Road Runner\winamp.dll

    *This will work if you installed Road Runner in default location.

    I was able to get it to work. Thanks for all the help. I'm not sure if it's related or just a coincidence, but after I got it to work it seems that my computer drastically slowed down. It boots up fast and programs load up fast. I'm not sure how to explain it, but when I open a program i get's kind of imprinted on the desktop and it overlaps with other windows that i have open. I opened up the task manager to see what's going on. I somehow I was able to somehow understand with all the overlapping. With nothing running system idle was at 99%. However when I play a song on windows mediaplayer, it takes a load of 100%. Any input would be appreicated. Thank you
