Hi, I am A. Stevens here to help with your question!Pretty strange that it would continue to ask for admin password, where did you obtain the version of Rosetta Stone? Could be a few things happening..one thought is that it might be trying to apply updates and needs admin rights

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Purchased it from Barnes & Noble New. It has been installed and 'works' but is requiring the admin rights every run... it is not doing updates and Rosetta Stone does not even support version 3 anymore, so there are no updates to install
Software technician: dresteve2000, Computer Engineer replied 2 years ago
I see..thanks for that info. Could you try uninstalling it and installing it again?

Otherwise you could do this as a workaround: Bypass UAC for specific programs in Windows 8.1

That will take hours... joys of crappy windows 8. I doubt that this will fix, as this has been running.
Does the runschedule task need to be created as admin and then desktop icon on user?
Software technician: dresteve2000, Computer Engineer replied 2 years ago
Yes, exactly.
