When it says "program too big to fit in memory", what it means is that you don't have enough RAM, it is not referring to the space on your hard drive. What is the program you are trying to run? How much RAM do you have on your computer and how big is the page file?

Well it seems that you would have enough memory then. This setup file might be a self-extracting archive type file. Try opening the file using winzip to see if you can see what's "inside" it.

You never said what program this setup file is for.
