How to Make Rosetta Stone Software Run on Flash Drives

Updated February 21, 2017

Rosetta Stone is a powerful language software that can be used to teach you just about any language you can think of (from Latin American Spanish to Indonesian). However, due to the price of the program, Rosetta Stone has license protection on the software to keep you from installing it on multiple computers. This can be a downside if you use two different computers yourself. Luckily, it is possible to run the Rosetta Stone software off of a Flash Drive. Doing this allows you to take the program from one computer to another without breaking your license agreement.

Connect your flash drive to the computer. Due to the program's size, you need a flash drive that has several gigabytes of memory available.

Insert the Rosetta Stone language software installation CD into the computer. Wait a moment for the installation wizard to launch.

Click "OK" on the welcome screen, then read through the license agreement. Once complete, click the "Accept" box to accept the agreement (you cannot install the software if you do not).

Follow the prompts to install the software until you come to the installation location. Next to the default setting, click "Browse." This allows you to select a different location on your computer. Click your flash drive as the installation location and click "OK."

Click "OK" several more times and the installation is going to start. Do not remove the flash drive until the installation is complete.

Double-click the flash drive icon in "My Computer" ("Computer" in newer versions of Windows). Select the "Rosetta Stone" icon. From here the program is going to launch from the flash drive.
