Erase it and replace it, yes.
isn't the prog trying to tell me that it needs to erase pncrt.dll?
Yes, uninstall both Real player and Real alternative (if you can) and see if you can manually delete pncrt.dll. Then run the install for Real Alternative again.
can I just go and delete that from the system32 folder?

Real Alt is perfect!
Probably one of the many "quality service agents" or other pieces of reporting garbage that Real Player strews all over your system. I wouldn't trust it to uninstall properly but I don't know for sure.
or another prog was using that file. Does that mean that Real Player wasn't fully uninstalled?
Good on you! Do some Google searches and see if you can dig out what Real Player does install. When you find out come back and tell me!
I'm really curious because I like learning about comps

Realnetworks practically invented spyware. They were sued for their privacy violations. They were sued again. Their spying drew the attention of the FTC. By now, the activities of RealDownload are well-known, as are those of RealJukebox. Would you trust a company with this record?

Real spent $2.5M in design fees and over a year and a half with my company. When the relationship ended we had produced detailed design documents that were about a foot high when stacked on top of one another. While we had designed solutions to all of these problems, Real ultimately chose to ignore them. Only some of the graphic design changes we recommended ever saw the light of day.
In my experience with Real, I found a company that had absolutely no respect for the user, that was supremely arrogant, and completely mismanaged by Rob Glazer and his team.
