Lost and Found:

I'm glad you got this reference work to run under Wine.

To check its memory use, use the Task Manager application in Windows. 
It should show how much memory is in use by the program.

Also, it is not possible, to my knowledge, to increase available memory
to any task.  However, it may be possible to 'tweak' virtual memory in
Wine so that you have more available for use.
