Google Talk is crashing when I share my music status with Winamp 5.5

If your Google Talk client crashes when you share your music status with Winamp 5.5, please follow the steps below to resolve the issue:

  1. Exit Google Talk and Winamp.
  2. Click start on your Windows taskbar.
  3. Select Run and enter: [ type nul: >>"%programfiles%\winamp\winamp.m3u" ]
    Make sure you use two carets (>>), not one (>).
  4. Click OK.

Note: If you installed Winamp in a different location from the default one, you'll need to use that location in the command in step 3. Replace %programfiles% with the correct location.
