Need Old WW InSQL 8.0

Need Old WW InSQL 8.0

Need Old WW InSQL 8.0


We have an eight year old network of SCADA PC's that control some manufacturing equipment.  At the begining of the month we suffered a hardware failure on the only server.  (I didn't design or build the system, I'm just the most recent administrator.)  (And, yes, we are planning on a massive upgrade of hard and soft ware.)

Anyhow, we replaced the motherboard and SCSI controller, and sent the hard drives off to a data recovery service.  

But, we found that we don't have on disk the same version of Wonderware InSQL as was originally installed.  InSQL 8.0.0 (no service packs) was there.  The oldest disk we have is for InSQL 8.0.1, but that version has a different level of SuiteLink than the original, which is not compatible.

Does anyone have, or know where we could get a copy of InSQL 8.0.0?  

We've been in touch with Wonderware, but they don't have any copies of it.

All leads will be greatly appreciated, as we are pretty desperate to get back into production.

Thanks in advance,

Computer Systems Process Engineer

I just sent an email to a former co-worker at the site/plant where I worked a couple years ago. We used WW but I don't know what versions they might have. I'll let you know if I hear anything back.

Thank you very much for checking.  

The version we need is from early 2002.  In case that helps someone locate the CDs.
