The following tech notes are excerpts from the read me file on
the Memorial CD-ROM ,as well as, additional comments leading to
solutions to your technical difficulties. This page will be periodically
updated with new technical information as we start to receive users
technical feed back. The Memorial website does provide a Memorial
Questions and Answers section which contains commonly asked questions
about the MEMORIAL CD-ROM's execution, and effect on the different
We have performed cross-platform testing which yielded the following
Our tests were performed on Power PC 8100 /100 machines with 64
Mb of RAM running System 7.5, several 68040/ Power PC machines with
16MB of RAM, and on a 520 c Powerbook with 24 Mb of RAM, also using
System 7.5. No problems were encountered.
PC tests on this operating system indicate a fully functional application.
The MEMORIAL install routine installs Version 2.0 of QuickTime onto
your 16 bit operating system. 8 Mb of RAM on a 486/33 or greater
is considered the minimum hardware. We tested this CD with HP Pentium
90s with 96 Mb of RAM and on 486/66 machines with 32 and 16 Mb of
RAM. We also tested it on a 120 MHz Toshiba and a 90 MHz Texas Instrument
portable, each with 32 Mb of RAM, as well as a Compaq Presario 75
MHz 586 with 16 Mb or RAM.
This CD ROM functioned properly under this operating system. The
same considerations as above apply except we recommend 16 Mb of
RAM as a minimum. Most of the machines that were tested with Windows
3.1 were also tested for Win 95.
We have had intermittently display problems with text and graphics
disappearing on Windows NT. This error is due to the programming
application used to develop the Memorial CD and is un-fixable under
the current version of the application. Our tests were performed
on the same machines for Windows 3.1 and Win 95 tests. See the Q&A
section for some possible work arounds to display problems on NT.
