  • Hi,
    I have Vista and I just installed RealPlayer v10.5 but it installed and now runs on my machine.
    The only thing I noticed so far is that I have to open music files from RealPlayer to play, cannot be done by double-clicking the file or right click and then open.

    What kind of installation problem do you have specifically?
    Have you tried downloading the exe file again?  It took me 3 times to download a executable exe file. I went to and followed the links to free basic player. Then I clicked "if you have trouble, please click here to re-download." I heard that if you have problems after installation, uninstall and then re-install is a good idea. Just some ideas.

    Wish you luck!

  • I had nothing but trouble with my new Sony laptop after I installed Realplayer 10 and then when I uninstalled it everything was fine.  Then I found this : RealPlayer is NOT compatible with Windows Vista Operating System

    With the recent release of the new operating system Windows Vista, it has come to the attention of UD Help Desk staff that the current version of RealPlayer (10.5) for Windows is NOT compatible with Windows Vista. RealNetworks indicates that they are working on a new version that will be released soon to address these compatibility issues.

    Has Microsoft said anything about this ????  For the moment I am not going to reinstall it until I think it is sorted out.
