Michelle :

Hi, and welcome to JustAnswer! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am excited to get started with you.

So I can better assist you, I will need additional information. Are you referring to setting your computers language to spanish?

No, I am english speaking and have R-S Russian loaded on my Mac Air. I need to load R-S Spanish....

JACUSTOMER-qn3gj0po- :

Do I have to take the Russian off the machine, or can we set the software up to accommodate both Russian and Spanish???

Michelle :

Oh ok so your questions is in reference to loading Rosetta Stone- Spanish onto your computer. No you do not have to remove to russian version. You can actually install it so it saves to your computers hard drive. As long as you have space on your hard drive, you can keep both

JACUSTOMER-qn3gj0po- :

OK, I load the first Spanish disk into the reader and The computer does not recognize it. It goes to the, already installed, Russian package

JACUSTOMER-qn3gj0po- :

I need both installed. How do I get the computer to understand this?

Michelle :

How many disks are included with the spanish version?

JACUSTOMER-qn3gj0po- :

Five plus three

Michelle :

Out of the 8 disk, are they in order? Are you loading the first disk?

JACUSTOMER-qn3gj0po- :

The three are audio companion

JACUSTOMER-qn3gj0po- :

The application desk sends a message that there is a later version of the software loaded on the machine

JACUSTOMER-qn3gj0po- :

This is where I stopped

Michelle :

Thanks for the info. It sounds like your issue may be related to a needed update. Click on the apple logo in the upper left corner and choose software update. what updates are available

JACUSTOMER-qn3gj0po- :

JACUSTOMER-qn3gj0po- :

It is the New Spanish Application Software that is out of date

JACUSTOMER-qn3gj0po- :

According to the message that I receive when I load the disk

Michelle :

If you are running 4.5.5, you can not run an earlier version

JACUSTOMER-qn3gj0po- :

It is all new. I downloaded the Russian about a month ago, then purchased the Spanish a week or so later

JACUSTOMER-qn3gj0po- :

So.... How do I get an upgrade for the Spanish App???

Michelle :

Although you should normally be able to load both software and use the same learner name, it looks like you will need to uninstall the russian version. Since I can only troubleshoot mac issues, I recommend calling Rosetta 1.800.­767.3882 so they can look into your account to see if there are activation issues or registry issues. Or you can email them. http://www.rosettastone.com/contact

Michelle :

I will go ahead and issue a refund since we are unable to help you here. According to their site, issues like this occur for account error reasons, activation reasons etc

JACUSTOMER-qn3gj0po- :

The Russian was downloaded and opens OK. The Spanish is new out of the box and the App will not open. The message is that a later version is already on the machine.

JACUSTOMER-qn3gj0po- :

Cay you send this chain to my EM so I can refer to it during my conversations with RS... And thanks so much for your help

Michelle :
