Thanks for all the replies.

Andrew: I checked and I have wmp on my PC. I can play the WMA files natively using WMP. So thats strange.

Something's disconnected somewhere.

I just tried RealBand (no I hadn't thought of doing that) and it's giving the same error. So that tells me its core to both applications so most likely system related.

I'm a developer so I'm trying a clean install again just to see if that makes any difference... lol. You might have to be a developer to get that joke.

Redhanded,

This might also be a problem caused by Realdrums since they, too, are converted to wav files for playing (at least as I understand things).

Some thoughts that spring to mind....

1. Click on "File | New" to start a new file (this is important as it should eliminate the possibility for a corrupt file being used as the basis song).

2. Now click on Stylepicker and load in the demo for some random Realtrack style. Click ok.

3. When back at the chord sheet, instead of hitting the "Generate" arrow, right-click on and individual track in the mixer and select "(re)Generate this track" from the pop-up menu . (This will generate the individual track.)

Doing the above should isolate whether the problem is with Realdrums, Realtracks or both.

Let us know how you go.

Regards,
Noel

No luck Noel.

I think I'm going to go with the install on my Windows 7 laptop for now. Something's not quite right with my Windows 10 setup but it's not going to be easy to sort out at this stage so I'll leave it alone for now.

When you say "No luck" was it Realtracks and Realdrums that were the issue or just one of them?

Did a quick search.
If you Google "windows 10 update wma files" you will see others are having this issue as well with W10.
For some the solution was to make IE the default browser so it could download the license!

"I had the same problem. I had to make IE the "default browser" and then I was able to play the wma music files. "

Gotta love M$
A sign of things to come?

ON Win 10 pro version 1511 there is no issues all is ok
But it is clear some versions of win 10 those are all above 1511 , which also report problems in The Windows media player . but saying that as I said before manually taking a real file it will play it no problem so its strange indeed id personally use win 7 or even get a brand new mac later as win 10 so far dont impress me its scary !
