as a footnote the included readme also mentioned this regarding ram requirement;
Encarta Encyclopedia needs at least 5 MB of RAM to operate; however, the multimedia components run better if more memory is available. On systems with the minimum recommended 8 MB of RAM, certain encyclopedia features are not be available. For optimum performace, use Encarta Encyclopedia on a system with at least 16 MB of RAM.
