N.B.: You still need to download Early Church Fathers’ Collection of Writings in WinHelp .HLP format from http://www.zeitun-eg.org/ecfidx.htm - the encyclopedia program will automatically integrate them into its collections, if the contents of the 37 downloaded zip files are extracted to the encyclopedia's ECFWH folder on your hard disk (usually C:\Program Files\EFMC2001\ECFWH ) replacing the dummy files having the same name in this folder.

OS requirements:
You need Microsoft® Windows® 95, 98, Me, NT4 or 2000 or XP-2003 (any language version).

A 486 or better PC with 8 MB RAM (Windows NT requires more RAM), a 256-color or better display, 4 MB of free hard disk space (in Windows folder), and a Windows-compatible sound card. A Windows-compatible printer is optional (colour printer will be better if you want to print any of the encyclopedia's photos - B&W printers are fine for text).
