    I've just installed iPlayer Desktop and it won't play the content protected by DRM so all I get is a nominal 3 seconds of channel ident.

    My system is
    Acer webbook ZA3
    Vista Business SP2 fully up to date with MS patches

    What I've already tried is
    uninstalling iplayer via Control Panel & reinstalling

    uninstalling Adobe Air, downloading latest version & reinstalling

    uninstalling both of the above and then removing the remaining referances left behind by uninstallers to either iPlayer or Air from registry, ProgramData, Program Files and user profiles by hand
    rebooting after each stage.

    Google the topic & tried options suggested by others

    None of which has worked.

    So what can I try now to get this working............................................

    Hi Geoff,
    Did you remove the folders listed here as well? iplayerhelp.external...

    After the ident do you get an error message or anything?
