2. Insure the client and server are installed in separate folders.
3. Click on the "Client" icon one time only.

NOTE: Programs cannot be running for you to adjust memory.

NOTE: You must be in the "Finder" to access "About This Macintosh". To assure you are in the "Finder", go to the upper right corner of the screen, press on the icon in the menu bar, drag down to and release on "Finder".
7. Memory allocations should be approximately 12 megabytes to the Server and 6-8 megabytes to the Client.
