Does it work if Winamp is already running when you try to play a song? Anyway, try checking:

1. that you've got the "start applications automatically" checkbox selected

2. that you have selected the right path to Winamp 3

3. that another application (such as Winamp 2) is not set to handle any file types (such as MP3s).

If you're still having problems, send me your BemusedServer.ini file and I'll see if I can figure out what's going wrong.

Path=C:\My Music\My Music\MP3_Volume1
PathToApplication0=C:\Program Files\Winamp\winamp.exe
PathToApplication1=C:\Program Files\Winamp3\Studio.exe
PathToApplication2=C:\Program Files\Winamp\winamp.exe

this is the ini does it look?

It looks like your problem is that Winamp 2 is set to handle several different music file types (mp3, mp2, wav and wma). This means that Bemused will try to load Winamp 2 instead of Winamp 3 - and I'm guessing that you don't actually have Winamp 2 installed?

To make Bemused use Winamp 3 instead, change the default application to Winamp 2, delete all the text in the "Handles file types" text box, then change the default application back to Winamp 3.

Hope this helps.

Just for ppl's info, there is a backward patch for Winamp 3 which allows you to use bemused 1.4 with it with minimal fuss. Can't remember what the file is called but doing a search on google should bring it up. (it's no longer hosted on the winamp page so don't go looking like I did for hours).

edit -- found the file name to make it easier.. it's called wa2mgr.exe


bemused, start, winamp
