Still a known issue with no expected date for resolution if any. (The previous thread about this is a year old with 2,400 views. It and other threads about this incompatibility have been closed.)
I spoke with Rosetta Stone and ZoneAlarm today about error 1141, in which Rosetta Stone TotalE will not launch while ZA is running. They agree it is a problem that ZA needs to resolve. However I wonder why RS can't make it possible to disable the offending daemon plugin. What's it doing, anyway?
ZA isn't "blocking Rosetta Stone" as some have suggested. There's a clear message in the ZA log when ZA blocks a program, and this is not that. ZA is silent, while RS experiences a fatal crash at launch.
FYI, a previous suggestion does not work: Unchecking "Launch ZA at startup" in preferences. The only workaround I've found is to uninstall ZA (Control Panel > Programs).
- Checkpoint ZoneAlarm Extreme Security version 12.0.104
- Rosetta Stone Total E version 188.8.131.52
If you're not running ZA, then read this RS technote for other possible solutions:
