I have well over $1,000 invested in Rosetta Stone language learning software packages that no longer functioning because Adobe Flash has been discontinued and taken off my PC's. The CD based Rostetta Some will no longer work.
Rosetta Stome revised there format away from PC based operation to web based and a subscription payment system. So basically my investment is now worthless unless I can get some thing to work with Rosetta Stone software. Any Ideas?
Rosetta Stone had 3 years notice and certainly could have adapted it. But they were probably delighted to have the chance to require a move to a new system. Software developers hate it when they get everything right and people just keep using their software without ever needing to upgrade.
All true, but is there any fix?

That's really a question you should put to Rosetta support.

Backwards compatibility is never certain. Nothing stays the same forever because technology is constantly moving forward.
Everyone had 3+ years advance notice that Flash Player was ending, more than ample time for programmers, developers and IT experts to replace their flash-based content.

Flash Player EOL info for Enterprise
I think it's fair to say that unless Rosetta intends to retrofit their old software to run without Flash Player, it's highly unlikely that you will find solutions here. Flash Player ended because Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Apple, Mozilla and other browser vendors killed it for security reasons.
NOTE: Running old versions of Flash Player that no longer receive security patches is risky for you and your computer. Don't do it.
