Google Talk Current Music Track Bug Workaround Fix

Google Talk version 1.0.0.104 (client) will crash under the following conditions:

1] Show Current Music Track is enabled
2] Winamp v5.5 is playing a music track

The following is a workaround fix:

Create an empty winamp.m3u file and drop the file into the C:\Program Files\Winamp directory.

Restart both applications.

Howto create an empty winamp.m3u file?

Right-click > New Text Document > Rename the file to winamp.m3u

Thank you, I am running 64bit Windows 7 and WinAmp 5.6x. WinAmp is installed in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp" and your solution still worked!

Awesome, for the record, I have winamp version 5.621, and this fix resolves the issue with that version as well!
