Emulation
This app works with: SheepShaver,

This version of Rosetta Stone includes the following European languages:

To decompress the download from the internal server, download the four parts to the same folder and remove the .zip extension from the first three, so that they are named as such:
RosettaStoneV2Europe.z01
RosettaStoneV2Europe.z02
RosettaStoneV2Europe.z03
RosettaStoneV2Europe.zip
Then open them with a decompression program, such as; The Unarchiver, which supports multi-part archives.

This is a disc for Mac and Windows

If you only want the Rosetta Stone application for OS X, download the "MAC_The_Rosetta_Stone_2.0.8.1A.dmg" file. This is included in the RosettaStoneV2Europe archive, so there's no need to download both.

See Also: Rosetta Stone Chinese, Rosetta Stone PowerPac

Compatibility
Architecture: PPC PPC (Carbonized) x86 (Windows)

RS Europe also runs under "Rosetta" on Intel OS X Leopard/Snow.

can not get the language files recognized by the program. I made an image with the 3 .TRS files and all folders of the language i am interested in. But it did not work.

Late response: It works (for me) if I recombine the 4 x .zip parts (the top four DL's, above) and burn this to DVD media or mount the .iso with Toast. You can copy the main application to your HD and run that, while the image or DVD is mounted.

On Mac it runs only on OS X (including Rosetta on 10.5 & 10.6). Some Classic components seem to be missing.
The RS Chinese page has the full installer for classic Mac OS's, OS X & Windows, which also works for RS Europe (Top DL on the RS Chinese page).

[Edit] I have since tested the Windows install. It runs well and plays the same as for OS X. - I am also able to mount the iso image as a virtual CD/DVD on Windows and that works fine too.

Hey,

i can not get the language files recognized by the program. I made an image with the 3 .TRS files and all folders of the language i am interested in. But it did not work. Same as miketomtom wrote.

Any ideas?

Additionally: Does the Rosetta Stone app here, actually work OK on OS X?

In OS X 10.4.11 the app launches OK (unlike in OS 9) but it cannot locate any language files.

I've tried to recreate a languages image using the description in the included "!!! Read Me !!!.txt" document, even burning it to a physical CD (twice) but all I'm getting so far is this error message in RS: "No Language data found. Click the Search button to try again". Which fails and I'm stuck in this endless loop with a search button and not even a "go look for files somewhere" type of dialog.

I'm guessing, the clue is in the "!!! Read Me !!!.txt" file: — "Macintosh users also need to copy the files from the application cd(.toast image) to the folder".

What's not included the DL archives above? Missing is the CD image "application cd.toast" <— Likely containing the Mac installers and files required to getting this to run properly on X and 9.

Unless there's something I'm doing wrong here. Anyone had more luck with this, than I've had?

   I have read the system requirements for Rosetta Stone v2 and it supported mac os9 with a powerpc processor.

@Jorkano Faln: Hi, the original media for RS likely did support Mac OS 9 - But, as this collection is a consolidation of files that originated from Pirate Bay, there appear to be essential files missing WRT running it under Mac OS 9.

For me, a "TSREngine.dcr is not a Director file", error message appears when I attempt to run it (Mac OS 9.2.2) and my only option is to quit RS.

As the only Mac files for the application are obtained from an OS X ".dmg" file, there could be obvious reasons why this won't work on 9. (a) Perhaps classic Resource Fork data is missing because it was assembled using OS X. Or (b) only Mac OS X compatible files were included (by the Pirate Bay uploader). Or (c) it was installed onto a Mac OS X system, and the installation program by default only installed the parts required by that system.

The user archived ".dmg" is from a pre-installed set. — There is no Mac installer included the archive.

I have read the system requirements for Rosetta Stone v2 and it supported mac os9 with a powerpc processor. I have already mentioned the system requirements on the application post. I ran the Danish version in a Windows 98se virtual machine and it worked flawlessly. I haven't tested it in mac os9 nor aac OSX because I do not have ppc hardware. Maybe the Mac installer is only desinged for mac osx 10.2 or higher. Check for a .bin or .sit file in the original archive, that file will be the mac os9 installer.

Thanks for looking, mrdav. If that Mac version of the RS cannot be replaced with one that will work on a native OS 9.x then the criteria above will need updating to reflect its uselessness under 9.x

Not working for me either on a Graphite iMac and Mac OS 9.2.2. The application starts up and then freezes on me.

Has anyone been able to use the current above DL's in a native Mac OS 9?

Its not working for me (on beige G3, Mac OS 9.1).

Not to say that it won't work under original conditions, only that the above has been custom put together under OS X, and appears to be missing something fundamental for OS 9 - conversion from the .dmg is also required before it can be used on 9, which probably doesn't help.

The Rosetta Stone app launches and wants to run under OS 9 but it fails with a "TSREngine.dcr is not a Director file", error message.

I'm thinking that what's needed here is a genuine RS release, or one that's been compiled and tested on an OS 9 system too.

It appears to work on OS X only. I guess the Win side also works, but is not tested by me.

From above:
"It includes the following European languages:

  • German, levels 1-2
  • Latin, level 1"

Comment:
Latin and German are dead languages.

Germans don't want to talk in German, often they use fake English words.

Hello
I have used Rosetta Stone in the past and it is fun, but this language learning is sometimes flawed as this video explains: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ItqQPVZs8qA. I would recommend it only for learning new vocabulary because some expressions are mistranslated. I hoped you have enjoyed this app.

  anyone know a way to unzip multi-part archives on OS9?

For joining part files on a classic OS9 system there's ChunkJoiner 2.2, which is restricted by a 2GB file size limit. The four part files above, when joined exceed that limitation. So ChunkJoiner is out.

As this is a segmented zip archive, then ZIPIT might be able to do it for you on OS 9, as it can join & unzip multi-part zip files. I say "might be able to" as I haven't used ZipIt in many years. The version here is Carbonized for OS 9 & X, so there is a chance that it can handle larger than 2GB file sizes.

The part files are for a zipped Mac/Win hybrid. I assume that (when extracted) it contains a .ISO image file. If no OS X is available for you, do you have access to Windows or Linux? These OS's would be a better bet for joining the parts, unzipping and burning to DVD.

Does anyone know a way to unzip multi-part archives on OS9? Stuffit 7 isn't having it, and I do not have access to an OSX system.

I'm studying English Education @ Saint Thomas College of Chile. This would be very useful for me... giving my iMac's a educative purpose. Thanks Smile
