No longer works with my Internet Explorer 9 on a Vista SP2 HP.

Worked for two years until mid-December Vista updates. Even the help desk at Real can't get it going!

It does deploy when viewing videos in 'Fox or GoogleChrome, but can't convert the effin movies without upgrading(read: $$$).

Guess the tech who helped me missed the memo that Movie Downloader and Converter no longer work on the free ver. of Real Player?

I'd probably keep the downloading part, and do the movie conversion
with some other program.

http://www.real.com/realplayer/download-video

What you could do with the Vista machine, is

1) Back it up, so you can get back to your "today" state if needed.

2) Use System Restore to return to mid-Dec2012 state, where it's
working.

Review updates (including, updates by RealPlayer itself),
and see what attempts to change, once you roll back to mid-December.
Maybe you can figure out what update broke it, then "hide" the update
so it can't be applied.

If the RealPlayer software itself is what got updated, it's
fairly good odds they broke it on purpose (to make money).

Hmmm. When I look here...

http://service.real.com/realplayer/security/en/

"December 14, 2012 RealPlayer Update
Security update."

I think we know who broke it now That date
doesn't seem to be a coincidence.

You'd need a way to roll back that update. System Restore
might work, but System Restore (if not configured just right),
might also have undesirable side effects. It's unlikely the
Real software would allow undoing their "security" update,
but you can look in the "Program Features" or whatever and
see if there is a separate entry for it. The Control Panel
used to be "Add/Remove Programs" on older OSes, but they
changed the name.

HTH,
Paul

If you needed to re-install it, there are older versions here.

This one is from before the December update.

Real Player 15.0.5.109 27 June, 2012 (6 months ago) 26.18 MB

Thanks Paul, I'll try that.

Also, you know what the Real support specialist recommended I do? Uninstall and reinstall my internet explorer.

Who the f|< is he kidding?! Doesn't he know that Vista, 7, and 8 allintegrate IE into the OS, and that removing it will destroy the computer??

He should be fired for suggesting that to me.
