Real Player in Windows 7

How did you get RealPlayer to work with Windows 7? It tells me that it will not work with my OS

I can't quite remember, i've not installed it on 7137 yet (but I have had it running). I'll do it now and report back.

Hi Jacee,

Have just installed Realplayer direct from www.real.com, selecting to run after download (not save to location).

Installation went flawlessly

I just ran the install, no compatability, no tweaks.

I'm using x86 if that makes any difference to you

Still can't get Real Player on this machine. "Shell Execution has stopped working", "trying to find a solution", then there's nothing and I'm back to my desktop again

Jaycee,

At what stage does the 'Shell Execution....' message appear. It could be something to do with current codecs installed for playing back .RM format video/music.

Added: Might be an idea to start a new thread in Software and see if we can't find a solution
