For some, such as myself, rosetta stone works out of the box on a 64bit prefix and using pulseaudio so long as volume is set just right. However, many others are having issues with sound or the Program simply not adding or running language packs. If this is you, you may want to try the following :
P.S. I borrowed and slightly edited the work around posted in the comments by another user as they were fairly concise. So special thanks to "PE3GN9O" from whom I borrowed this. Also thank you to the person who submitted the test results that also mentioning this work around.

I am not a tech person and just want a few apps to work in Ubuntu. It has been a few years where I have tried to make this work and given up because I don't get it.
Where can I find something easy on where you install an outside program on Wine? I don't understand. The above comment said it might work straight out of the box but I am not sure what that means. What were people doing that made it work that way?
I also don't understand how to create a path for my DVD drive if I have to go through the terminal. This is all 100% new to me. All I have is Ubuntu and I need this and Overdrive. It is not anywhere on the internet and I am a librarian so that is saying something. I read the basic Ubuntu book. It does not teach Wine.
Thanks for your help

Wine has a default prefix and you can create separate prefixes. (Prefixes are special folders with libraries, programs and configurations. Each one can hold different configurations) Because various installation and changes can break one thing and not another it is often recommended to use different prefixes for various programs. A clean prefix would be one without any previous modifications or changes, such as ones created by wine tricks or dll overrides.
Given that you are not clear on this I will assume you are using the default prefix. To get a new clean prefix simply go to your home folder, ctrl + h to show hidden folders. Then find the .wine folder. Delete this folder, If you have anything installed with wine this will cause you to lose it. (Alternatively you can read on how to create and select prefixes.) After you install if it fails still go into the .wine folder and search through it to see if the installer created its own files and directories. If it has there should be another setup file in there.
If that is the case run the setup present in there. It seems people uses some languages have had to do this though I have not experienced this myself. Some have also reported it working under wine stagging for them but not under regular wine. If any of this works let me know and I will help you file some test results and look into the issues, so I can add the appropriate information to the page.
