Default RAM help

I recently purchased a Dell XPS M1530 and it came with Windows Vista Home Edition. According to my Control Panel, i have 4.00 GB of RAM on the system. However, i also downloaded the Finale Music demo. When i extract the files to install and start the installation, it says that Finale needs "256 MB of RAM." to install properly. The installation then quits. What is wrong? Is it a problem with my computer settings, the finale demo, or windows vista? thanks for the help,

Austin

I seriously doubt that has anything to do with you ram. According to the website it is Vista Compatible.... So, when you start the install file. It just suddenly disappears? I'm downloading it now on my computer sense the program looks interesting btw lol. I'll see what happens sense I have the same OS
