Macromedia Error When Running Rosetta Stone

Problem: When running Rosetta Stone, an error comes up saying "Macromedia Projector has encountered a problem and needs to close"

Solution: Right click the shortcut to Rosetta Stone > Properties > Compatibility Run it in a lower compatibility mode. I saw suggestions online to run it in Windows 95 & to disable visual themes. Running it Windows 95 or 98 mode did not work for me and it worked fine in Windows NT/2000 mode. I did not have to disable visual themes.


  1. Still didn't work for me. :( Are you running the lastest flash player, ect?

  2. Setting compatibility to Windows XP SP3 worked out for me, thanks!
