I am trying to play a DVD on my laptop which is Windows 10.1 with Realplayer installed.
The error message reads: "The file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program, or, if one is already installed, create an association in the defaults program control panel."
When loading the DVD, a Realplayer screen appears and in orange on the top bar it says Upgrade to Premium.
This appears to be Realplayer 18 Plus at 35.99!!
Can anyone help or advise please?
Thanks. Dave

Download VLC, plays virtually everything - you don't have to "contribute" if you don't wish to.

This is the link for the 64 bit version....................
