Real Player Downloader

When I updated Real Player yesterday the Downloader stopped working, I have unistalled and reinstalled, installed the plugin over the top with no luck. Eventually I uninstalled using Revo uninstaller in Advanced mode, cleaned the registry and re installed. I now get the Downloader to work most of the time, although sometimes it fails to appear, has anyone else had this problem or know of a sure fire cure? Thanks RP

I'd try a system restore then uninstall RP via programs and features and only selecting to remove the program. Re-install here: Real Player Free

That's if you use the free version.

rdave 13* As I said I have already done that in fact about 4 times including using system restore, I have also uninstalled in programs and features then deleted Real in application data. The only way I get it to work at all is to completely get rid of all registry entries and then reinstall

So it's working now? Revo can be a two pronged program. It knackered my Quicktime light by trying to uninstall it. Now I have to have the full Quicktime player. I believe that revo can also knacker Real player, so use with caution. One thing to think about is your security (inc firewall) and check that RP is allowed.

rdave13 Thanks, it's really strange it seems now to be working, but a couple of times the Downloader just doesn't appear. I am using Norton and I don't think it is blocked. I have googled and there seems to be quite. Number of problems. I will give it a day or so and see how it goes. Thanks RP

Just be careful of Revo. It can cause havock with Windows Mail, Windows Live Mail, WL Messenger and any programs that have a similar 'base' as wont for a better word. Glad it's working now.

Thanks, I don't use any of those. I have always regarded Revolution as safe so it's good to be forewarned.
