I think this is going to become a problem in future, as obviously, all development of the software has stopped.
 
I won't know any more until much later in the year.
 
If anyone has coding experience that might be up to the task, please register your interest by posting on this thread.
 
This issue is becoming more and more common as we move forward - not just in the case of this software, but for many other forms of what is regarded by the world at large as 'abandonware'.
 
I get around the problem by using an old PC and running whatever OS (DOS, Win 3.1, Win 95, '98, XP etc) I need on it, then transferring the data out by some other means.
 
Sorry I can't be of more help right now.

Thank you for the info, I have an old laptop with windows XP, I will use that for a while. Problem is it has no serial port so I will have to get an adaptor. Raymond,
 
So sorry to hear about Boris, he was one of the best and I am sure a lot of people are going to miss him.
