Missing Wizard Problem Solved!

To those of you who have Real Player 10 installed and have lost the use of
the Camera Wizard, I have found the cause and have a solution.

There is an incompatability between the Wizard and the file REALSCHED.EXE,
which runs on startup. Disable it with the Task Manager and the functionality
of the Wizard is restored. You can permanently disable REALSCHED from running
on startup using MSCONFIG. However, it will become active again any time Real
Player is started. But it is definitely not necessary to uninstall Real
Player to mitigate the conflict.

I have confirmed that this file is the cause of the problem, but have no
idea just what purpose it serves other than taking up memory. Perhaps it is
the source of those %$#@@#$$# Real Player pop-up messages!

Another option is to get rid of Real Player altogether. Companies that
insist on putting their programs in startup, regardless of your choices,
will only get the message if we don't use their junk.

An alternative is Real Alternative, free and unobtrusive, at:

I have received a reply from Real Player technical support, which I attach
herewith. I have confirmed that their answer solves the problem of the
missing USB menues and missing Camera Wizard.

"You can shut down automated update service.

Open Real Player. Go to Tools then Preferences.
Click on Automated Services and then Disable Message Center and Auto updates.
