How can I update to the latest version?
Updated software is available to all RealPlayer customers with Windows operating systems. By using the most recent version, you can resolve some problems you might be having with the program and can play additional file types. To check your current version number, click the Help menu, then About RealPlayer.
To make sure you are using the latest software, check to see whether there is an update available:
1. Open RealPlayer.
2. Click the logo, then Check for Update:
- If the Message Center window appears, click Update to get the latest version of RealTimes/RealPlayer.
- If the AutoUpdate window appears, scroll through the list, select RealPlayer or any plug-ins that you want to update, and click Install. Plug-ins will install automatically.
3. If prompts appear for additional steps, follow them for complete installation. You may need to make sure that the program is running with administrator privileges and that you are logged in under an administrator account.
Note: If you previously purchased RealPlayer Plus 16 or an earlier version, upgrading to RealPlayer 18/RealTimes will require you to purchase RealPlayer Plus 18 or a monthly or annual subscription if you wish to keep your Plus features.
