Installing Real Player on 50 PCs with no internet. Am I screwed or is there a redistributable copy?

The installer for the current free Real Player is around 1MB, clearly not the entire app - it downloads the full install during install, but doesn't save it anywhere for you to use again .. at least as far as I can tell.

This is for a media company that for some reason is particularly concerned about staff "goofing off on the web". They have email but no web access outside of the company's intranet.

Any ideas? Any leads? Any hope?

Thanks!

have you looked at wininstallLE? you could use this software to prior and post realplayer installation, create a MSI package then distribute via GPO. Take a look and let me know how you get on..

_Important_: I'm not sure whether we can do that legally. I found this thread:

To be safe, please ask real.com first before following the steps from walkernews.

Hope that helps :)
