Rosetta Stone 3.4.5 no longer working under Wine 1.2
About 3 months ago I got Rosetta Stone (version 3) working under Ubuntu using Wine, after some weeks trial and error. It was still working at the end of July, after which I didn't attempt to use it until last week. It no longer works, and I suspect this may be because in the meantime I upgraded Wine to version 1.2 - I'm not sure what version I upgraded from; possibly 1.1.43. If I start it by right-clicking the .exe file name and choose "Open with Wine Windows Program Loader", the task bar shows "Opening RosettaStoneVersion3" for a few seconds. Nothing else happens. If I execute it from a terminal - i.e. type "wine RosettaStoneVersion3.exe" while in the Rosetta Stone folder, nothing at all is output. Any ideas, please?

my 2 cents and most others too

if you are going to use a MS Windows ONLY program then run it ON WINDOWS
AND send Rosetta Stone a NICE letter informing them that you will NEVER NEVER be buying there software ever again UNTIL they release a Linux version and that they LOST a customer .

put YOUR $$$$$ to work.

Rosetta Stone and Wine
Thanks John - I know you're right, but it's frustrating that I *had* it working and now I haven't. I shall contact Rosetta Stone but I don't expect it to have any effect. Meanwhile I guess I'll have to run RS on my laptop, on which I reluctantly keep Win XP for such emergencies as this.
