I tried installing a program (MacDiff 4.2.6, which is used in my field of study), by emulating both OS 8.4 and 9 via SheepShaver and Basilisk, as I am using Windows 10. I pretty much followed the instructions on here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TY3pjSGg1y4&t=1006s to install the OS.

Now, my problem is when I run the MacDiff program, a popup will appear stating "There is not enough memory to open MacDiff 4.2.6 (zero K needed, 490,715 K available). Closing windows or quitting desk accessories can make more memory available." I've extracted the .hqx and the succeeding .sea file, and I ran the installer for MacDiff, leading to the memory problem.

Additional details for MacDiff are here http://www.geologie.uni-frankfurt.de/St ... InfoE.html

Could anyone help me with this issue? Thank you.

Not sure what went wrong on your side. HQX and SEA may be troublesome on a Windows host.
For me the app runs, as it should - at least Testfile 1 is opened without issues.
Host is macOS Sierra, guest OS is MacOS 8.6, I can try with W10 too, if need should be.

If you wish, I might send/upload a zipped img container of MacDiff_4.2.6_complete.
Its 8,5 MB or so, should be done in an instant.
Such file may be unzipped and added to the SheepShaver volumes GUI easily.
It may be a good idea to add app and docs to Macintoshgarden, together with the 68k build - if the Author won´t mind - that is.

Sounds like a plan. If it's not too much, could you please upload it? Thank you. :)

How much memory are you giving to SheepShaver? I think the problem may be that you're giving it too much. Drop the memory down to 128MB or less and you should be fine. Your error indicates that you've probably got it set to 512MB.

Done, lets see how this will work for you.

Hopefully Mega is all right for you.
As said above, unzip and add the img to the SheepShaver Volumes tab.
I´m usually running the emulators with 1024 MB RAM, not that it would be needed.
