It needs it for a particular program or in general? Provide details about your Macbook, version of OS X and so on..

"Rosetta" is an optional install under Snow Leopard. If you need to install Rosetta...I'm pretty sure you need a Snow Leopard (10.6) install DVD...since after a short internet search I couldn't find any download sites.

A Snow Leopard install DVD is only $29...a lot better than $129 Apple has charged for some previous OS upgrades.

HTH,

You're likely trying to run or install a program that was designed specifically to work with the PowerPC CPU that Macs used to use up until the switch to Intel. Rosetta acts as a PowerPC emulator.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

so pretty much the only way is through an install disk? There is no other way?

What you posted in post #7 is basically what "cwa" posted in post #4.

What you said is true...you just used different words to say the same thing.

I don't see any information about what software led to the rosetta issue. I guess that would come from the OP.

Yes...this info would have to come from the OP. But if we have already answered the OP's question...or solved their problem...then we may never hear back from the OP.

Rosetta is included on the Snow Leopard installation disk but as you've been told, it's not installed by default. If you lost your SL disk or don't have it on hand, you can always buy another from any Apple store or Best Buy for $29.

Which program is it that you're trying to install or use that needs Rosetta?

Using Snow Leopard and don't have the disc? Wow!

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
