By going into Windows Explorer, you can try copying the files from Real Player to Windows Media Player.

In Windows Explorer, look for the Real Player folder, open it up, and copy all the files.

You can that one by one or, click once on one of the files, then press the SHIFT key and hold it down while using the arrow keys to go the other files you want copied After you have highlighted as many files as you can, then place the cursor on one of the highlighted files and right-click; go down to copy and click on it.

The next step is to open up the Windows Media Player folder Once it is open, right click and go down to PASTE and click on it The files should copy over.

Then attempt to execute one of the files to test if the copying worked.
