That is wrong..
The Exe File which used VIS_MILK2 should have a Manifest for the DLL
not the DLL it self.

I don't see how an EXE/DLL is supposed to know what runtime version another DLL will need. And what happens if there's another DLL that needs yet another runtime version? XMP-WAVIS.DLL uses the generic MSVCRT.DLL runtime (which doesn't require a manifest), while VIS_MILK2.DLL uses the MSVCR90.DLL runtime (which does require a manifest). It looks like Microsoft have gone back to the old system for more recent runtimes, so only MSVCR80.DLL (Visual C++ 2005) and MSVCR90.DLL (Visual C++ 2008) need manifests. Dependency Walker can be used to check whether a plugin is using either of those runtimes.

i have written Bass_Vis and work with Visualization more then 8 Year
Bass_Vis work with all Option from any VisPlugin to "IN and OUT" i never use any Manifest inside Bass_Vis.
Also any Exe which used Bass_Vis as Wrapper for Visualization then the EXE must have a Manifest when use VIS_MILK2 for Winamp 5.
If not VIS_MILK2 will not RUN.

You can use Manifest inside the EXE or external as MyExeName.Manifest.
Add a Manifest inside XMP-WAVIS.DLL is not correctly.

ok.. no Problem, no source of  "XMP-WAVIS" so you can nothing Change or finish missing Action for Visualization.
and using XMP-WAVIS of your own risk.

latest Milkdrop no longer use MSVCR90.DLL runtime so a manifest is not needed
latest Milkdrop use Mousewheel support for Option Dialog which is not Support by XMP-WAVIS (Option Config Dialog will also not run)
and so on...

I have so far detected that when using some winamp vis plugins, and we use the mouse click over the progress bar on the xmplay, sometimes instant off, and other after some minutes, both xmplay and plugins get fully locked.

I have requested by MP to the xmp-wavis author some revision but also i want to know the Ian's opinion about this.

I have never really used the xmp-wavis plugin myself, so I'm not familiar with what could be going wrong. But, if you upload a dump file from when it's stuck, I will check if that reveals anything. You can use Task Manager's "Create Dump File" option to generate a dump file once XMPlay and the plugin have gotten stuck, and then ZIP and upload it here:
