How to Download Microsoft Encarta Kids 2009 for Free
Microsoft Encarta Kids 2009 was a popular educational software for children aged 7 and up. It featured articles, games, multimedia, and websites that were curated by Encarta professionals. It was a great way to help kids with homework and learn in a fun and engaging way.
Unfortunately, Microsoft discontinued Encarta in 2009 and you can no longer download it from their website. However, there are still some ways to get your hands on this amazing software for free. In this article, we will show you how to download Microsoft Encarta Kids 2009 for free using a simple method.
Step 1: Download the Encarta 2009 file
The first step is to download the Encarta 2009 file from a reliable source. You can use the link below to access the file from the Internet Archive, which is a non-profit organization that preserves digital content. The file is in French, but you can change the language settings later.
Download Encarta 2009 from Internet Archive
Once you click on the link, you will see a page with some information about the file. Click on the \"DOWNLOAD OPTIONS\" section and choose \"TORRENT\". This will download a small file that will allow you to download the actual Encarta 2009 file using a torrent client.
Step 2: Download and install a torrent client
A torrent client is a software that allows you to download large files from other users who have the same file. You will need a torrent client to download the Encarta 2009 file from the Internet Archive. There are many torrent clients available online, but we recommend using uTorrent, which is free and easy to use.
Download uTorrent from its official website
Once you download uTorrent, run the installer and follow the instructions to install it on your computer. You may need to allow uTorrent to access your network in your firewall settings.
Step 3: Open the Encarta 2009 torrent file with uTorrent
After you install uTorrent, go to the folder where you downloaded the Encarta 2009 torrent file. It should have a .torrent extension. Double-click on it and it will open with uTorrent automatically. You will see a window with some details about the file and its size. Click on \"OK\" to start downloading the file.
The download may take some time depending on your internet speed and the number of seeders (users who have the complete file and are sharing it). You can check the progress of the download in uTorrent's main window. Once the download is complete, you will see a green check mark next to the file name.
Step 4: Extract and run the Encarta 2009 file
The Encarta 2009 file that you downloaded is compressed in a .rar format. You will need a software that can extract .rar files, such as WinRAR or 7-Zip. You can download either of them from their official websites:
Download WinRAR from its official website
Download 7-Zip from its official website
Once you download and install one of these software, go to the folder where you downloaded the Encarta 2009 file. It should have a .rar extension. Right-click on it and choose \"Extract here\" or \"Extract to encarta-2009\" depending on which software you are using. This will create a new folder with the same name as the file.
Open the new folder and look for a file named \"setup.exe\". Double-click on it and follow the instructions to install Encarta 2009 on your computer. You may need to enter a serial number during the installation process. You can use this one: M6FJF-BQ6HW-TY ec8f644aee
