You may face runtime error, if RealPlayer has some software issues. When you encounter the runtime error message, the RealPlayer normally closes or freezes and in some cases the operating system may reboot. You are suggested to verify through the developer's website that all updates or patches that may be available, have been installed. If you cannot find the patches or available updates, then you should uninstall and/or reinstall the program.
Other reasons for RealPlayer runtime error
Another reason for the appearance of runtime error while using the RealPlayer is the conflict between the TSR (Terminate and Stay Resident Program). When the runtime error occurs, you should check whether it has come up due to the third-party program or TSR by end tasking all open programs. Add-on, plug-in and other extra software associated with the RealPlayer are the other reasons for the runtime error. The computer viruses are also capable of affecting the system settings or memory in order to generate a runtime error.
You should delete the temporary Internet files from the Internet Options in Control Panel. Close all the programs running in the background in order to prevent the conflict between the third party software. It is necessary to update driver software for video and sound cards. If any of the above measures do not work, then you could reinstall the RealPlayer software to prevent the issue.
