Rosetta Stone

Rosetta Stone is interactive language learning software that teaches a new language by immersion, rather than translation and memorization drills. A completely immersive environment. As a child, you learned to speak instinctively by experiencing the world around you. Our solution recreates this experience through a fully immersive environment right on your computer. No translation or memorization. We’ve eliminated the traditional approach of using translation and grammar rules, empowering you to think in your new language. There are no flash cards, dictionaries or memorization drills. A carefully designed sequence of activities. By surrounding you with words, images and the voices of native speakers, our method lets you progress naturally from words and phrases to sentences and conversations.

HowTo / Notes

Installation on Fedora 16, Wine 1.5.2

With 64-bit wine everything worked out of the box. After I had issues installing other software, I installed 32-bit wine (i686). Running old prefix, created with 64-bit version, did not work so I set up a new one.


  • 32-bit wine (i686)
  • q4wine


  • set wineprefix to desired location
  • set winearch to win32
  • Create a new prefix by running winecfg.
  • Set version to Windows 7.
  • Set up the prefix in q4wine with all the default settings.
  • From q4wine run uninstaller and install Rosetta Stone.
  • mount language cdrom in Linux
  • set up / check Fake Drive in q4wine to have the cdrom mapped as a drive. If you need to set up the drive, quit Rosetta Stone first.
  • install languages
Installation on Fedora 17 x86_64, wine 1.5.3 (i686)
Install wine.i686 packages. I had issues running programs under Wine with the default nuoveau drivers. Then I installed nvidia drivers as per this forum thread and now the app runs.

Prior to this it was throwing the following error when running:
