Sounds to me the software you are trying to install doesn’t support Rocky Linux. Ask the people who provide the software to support Rocky Linux. Since the installation problem is with their application.

It seems quite common that applications determine the platform they are on, possibly by testing presence/value of some environment variables and/or files, like /etc/os-release. The test could be hard-coded in binaries, or a script. Practically, either found “word” is in the list of known words, or not.

Obviously a provider of application is not willing to offer support for more than to tiny selection of platforms. That is understandable from resource-allocation viewpoint, but does not take into
consideration that platforms could be practically identical, as they are in RHEL vs Rocky case.

One might be able to cheat the test to believe that it sees a RHEL system. Depends on the test.

Overall, both RHEL 9.1 and Rocky 9.1 are dead. Completely unsupported. Red Hat does sell extended support for some RHEL point updates, but 9.1 was never one of them. In other words, it has been a very poor choice for a company to select 9.1 as what they support, because they had customers only for six months.
