Installation of MRockola Free Music Player:
Double click on the setup file to initiate the process of installation. Agree the terms and condition and proceed to the next step. The space required by this free music player is 79MB only. After the completion of the installation, launch the application to start using it.
MRockola user interface is unique and is very easy to use. Performance wise also it only takes minimum system resource and doesn’t hang your computer as many software do. This may be under the beta stage, but it is very stable. One thing I didn’t like is it inability to go back to the previous menu, there is a provision to do that using the F2 function key but nothing on the interface. Apart from that, it’s a very good music player and it is strongly recommended to try this atleast once.
