How can I run an application that requires 2gb ram on an Acer netbook with 1.5? The application is NaturallySpeaking voice recognition software. I would need to both get around the limitation, and actually make it run ok.

I have an acer netbook. Searching reveals that these can only be upgraded to 1.5gb. If I put a 2gb cartridge in, it will still be limited to 1.5 in total by the motherboard. (Let me know if you have a way round this)
A new pc is not on the cards, and I could really do with the transcription software. I can't run an older version as they don't work with windows 7.
The software will not install if there is not enough ram apparently so I can't try it out.
Is there a way to trick the software into installing?
And then, importantly, to get it to run adequately? I thought of using a light word processor instead of getting office 10, that kind of thing, but can I tweak windows to make this work?
