We tried our best to compile programs that work on most computers with the minimum system requirements. Your computer, however, may differ, and some programs may not work properly for some reason.

The two most likely problems are that you do not have enough memory (RAM) for the programs you want to use, or you have other programs running that are affecting the installation or running of a program. If you receive error messages like Not enough memory or Setup cannot continue, try one or more of these methods and then try using the software again:

• Turn off any antivirus software.

• Close all running programs.

• In Windows, close the CD-ROM interface and run demos or installations directly from Windows Explorer.

• Have your local computer store add more RAM to your computer.

If you still have trouble installing the items from the CD-ROM, please call the Hungry Minds Customer Service phone number: 800-762-2974 (outside the U.S.: 317-572-3994). You can also contact Hungry Minds Customer Service by e-mail at [email protected].
