This is a tracker, at least at this time, for Integer releases of MAME ONLY Bleeding edge binaries, Daily builds or anything else are not valid for reporting here.
That said, this is not your fault and isn't some anti-XP trickery. There are regressions with file loading and softlists which are being handled as soon as possible and covering most systems. Just keep an eye out via GIT about issues and regressions being resolved before release (which is scheduled for August 31). I highly suggest you keep to 0.176 until 0.177 released.

If you encounter issues with bleeding edge/non supported binaries, post to one of many forums (,,, etc) and I'm sure a developer will see it.
I've suspended this one until 0.177 and will delete if the issue has been taken care of at that time.

This has been fixed in local GIT and should not appear in 0.177 release.
Upon 0.177, this will be deleted.
