I had an older plus version that all of a sudden would not work anymore nor would it let me sign in. I decided to take the offer to upgrade my plus version. I downloaded it and installed it. It said installation complete. I clicked the button to Start Now but nothing happened. I searched my computer and there is no real player or real times program. Both the older version and the new installation are no longer there. I search for the folder, but it is empty. I thought it was a fluke so I installed it again and had the same result. No program after it says the installation was complete.
There is no application icon to click on...it doesn't install one.

Let us know how it goes.
Thanks. That appeared to do the trick.
I had to install the free version even though I have paid for the prime version. I thought that upon signing in it would change over to the paid version, but there was no indication that that happened.
How can I tell which version I have, and what do I need to do if I have the free version and want to use the paid version?
