Description

RealNetworks is making available product upgrades that contain security bug fixes.

RealNetworks always recommends upgrading your product to the most current version available to avoid security vulnerabilities.

Important Notes:

  • The installation process will shut down the RealPlayer application without notification if it is running during deployment of this update.
  • A message box may briefly appear during the deployment, but no user interaction is required.
  • There is a known RealPlayer issue where installation may halt with error message "As a Restricted User you do not have adequate Windows operating system rights to use this program to install software. Please contact your system administrator for help." This issue may occur if there is no user logged in or the user that is logged in does not have administrative rights. In this scenario, deploy the patch content with the drop-off option, and then manually install it from the System temp directory (e.g., 'C:\Windows\Temp').
  • Revision Information:
    Revision 2: Modified to more accurately detect the appropriate language of RealPlayer.
    Revision 3: Modified to include important notes about a known issue with some installations; added support for drop-off only deployments.
