    It came via Windows Update, i stopped using the HyperV workaround and it never froze.

    I've just noticed this post. I'll start reusing Real Player's latest version [Plus] to see if that fixes the problem I was having with freezing.

    The freezing issue seems to have been resolved with the hotfix. The latest version of Real Player still seems to be incompatible with Windows 8.

    Every time I use it for any length of time it just breaks. Windows 8 It freezes, no information is to be seen on the page and also note the blue bar at the top of the screen instead of the selected system colour scheme. The downloading of Flash films using Real Player also does not work in W8. To get it working again the programme has to be shut down and reopened. When this happens Real Player also manages to bring down my ethernet connection, meaning a complete re-start of the computer is needed to get internet connectivity back up and running on the PC. Clean re-installs of the latest version of Real Player do not resolve the issue. Hopeless.

    This is the only programme I have come across on my system that does not work as it should in Windows 8.
