RealPlayer child process "_LOCATION_/realplay" not found error

Can anyone help with this error :

'There was an error launching the application.
Details: Failed to execute child process "__LOCATION__/realplay" (No such file or directory)'

I get it when trying to open realplayer that was loaded from the .bin. The current dir is /home/user/Realplayer8

it's looking in /usr/local/RealPlayer8/

which is where it's "supposed to be installed"

run the .bin file again as root and it will install into it's default location
