Windows XP Pro 32 bit
Winamp lite v5.581
WavPack plugin v2.8a

I'm at a loss here. I used to use Winamp v5.35 lite along with the WavPack plugin to listen to my WavPack files. I just installed it yesterday and it works normally for all files except WavPack files. The .WV extension doesn't show in the file types list, but the in_wv.dll is installed in the C:\Program Files\WinAmp\Plugins folder.

I've tried Winamp versions 5.35, the current 5.581, and even an old 2.x version, and the .WV extension never shows up in the file types list despite the in_wv.dll being installed in the C:\Program Files\WinAmp\Plugins folder.

Any ideas?

Despite you thinking v2.6 of the plug-in wouldn't work I decided to try it.... and it worked.
Installed it and right away I saw WV in the file types list in Winamp's preferences. Then I got v2.7 of the plug-in by editing the link you gave me, installed it, and WV was gone again.

Earlier this evening before you replied I was messing around with Dependency Walker. I've used it before but I really don't know what I'm doing.
If I see something in red I just assume it's a file that's missing or corrupt, so I download a copy and see if it fixes the issue.
In the case of Winamp the following DLLs were listed in red and said not to be on my PC:

wzcdlg.dll (related to Wireless Zero Configuration)
msoert2.dll (related to Outlook Express)
msjava.dll (related to java)

I don't know why any of those would have anything to do with the issue but I downloaded them from some DLL website and put them in the system directory but it didn't solve the problem.
I was Googling and trying to see if I could find anyone else with this problem and I did find a couple, and one of the suggestions had something to do with putting libmmd.dll in Winamp's plug-in folder. Did it, didn't help.
Dependency Walker also shows the icon (or whatever) for mpr.dll in red, but the file isn't missing, it's already on my PC. This is the message it gives:

"Warning: At least one module has an unresolved import due to a missing export function in a delay-load dependent module."

That's all Greek to me, and I was ready to give up because I didn't know what else to do, but v2.6 of the plug-in worked, so thanks very much for making it available.
Do you have any ideas as to why it worked though? How do versions 2.6 & 2.8 of the plug-in differ?
