Windows 7: Need REAL PLAYER - Older Version

21 Mar 2016   #1

Need REAL PLAYER - Older Version

I'm trying to find a reliable download source for an older version of RealPlayer: The newest versions don't have the "Download This Video" link, but version does have it.

When I search Google for links, there are several sites that 'claim' they're legitimate -- but I don't know if they are. For example, Brothersoft (Download Free RealPlayer, RealPlayer Download) claims to have a download link, but are they safe to use? Does anyone know?

Alternatively, I do have RealPlayer version on an older laptop (with Vista) but I can't figure out how to transfer it to my Windows 7 laptop. The 'application' link doesn't download all of the components, and I get error messages saying that PNCRT.dll is missing. And I'm assuming there are other components missing as well.

Can anyone help?

You can also try for older versions of software. They have a good collection of the old versions.
