NOAH and Windows 95

Just had a couple thoughts for Paul Woodard of Des Moines, Iowa who wrote
about problems loading Noah onto a 486.  

It is my understanding that a new version of Noah 2.0 will be out very soon.
I think my Oticon rep said next week.  Maybe the updated version will load on
your system.

Further, although I am not a MIS specialist and I will not soon be quitting my
day job to try to work in this capacity, I wonder if your insufficient memory,
error message might stem of a shortage of RAM.  I know that Noah needs 8 megs
of RAM to run.  If your 486 has a total of 8 mgs of RAM, there might not be
enough for Noah to run.  Although I've never tried them, I am aware of soft ram
or ram doubler software which is certainly less expensive than RAM sims. 
Maybe loading something of that nature into your system might help.  Let me
know if this helps or if you get up and running.

Finally, I've been using Windows 95 at home for 2 or 3 months, and I really
like it.  It seems more stable than Windows 3.11 especially when multi-tasking.
I'd like to load it at work because it would then be quite simple to switch
between the Noah platform, used for most programmable systems, and the ReSound
PC Expert which does not yet (and I wonder if it will ever) work with the Noah
platform.
