Can't install RealPlayer 11 gold

  Buffy's mum 17:17 24 Apr 2008

Hi all, Using Windows XP Pro and tried to update to realplayer 11 last night. Everything seemed to go well until the actual install - as soon as it starts it closes before completion and I've re-booted, tried several times etc. with no joy. The icon is on my desktop, but when you click it goes into the install cycle again. Any ideas? I'm also having trouble with the video driver (see separate thread) could this be related?

Could be related, sensible thing to do is resolve your graphics driver issue first and then try again, trying to fix two separate things at once will only cause confusion...

There's a free program out there called 'realalternative'. It does everything Real Player does but without the strings attached. No e-mail required, no pop-ups, no 'calling home' and no inconvenient CPU assault. Got 40 PCs at work running far with no problems. Good luck with your drivers: )

Hi all, Not really resolved, but lost patience and have re-installed an earlier version until I'm sure my pc is cured of all other ills! thanks for all help.
