    Unanswered: I Need Oracle 5.1c (ms-dos)

    Believe it!.. I have a new client whose 40MB hard drive finally failed after 20 years of use!.. He was running an application developed with ORACLE 5.1C under MS-DOS 5.0. He does not have the original disks for ORACLE, but has the last backup of his data and would like me to reinstall the ORA5.1.
    He doesnt want to upgrade to a windows-based system, says that his DOS-based ORA app does everything he needs and was fast.

    Does anyone know where I can get a copy of this DOS version with
    SQL*PLUS, FORMS, REPORT, LOADER, MENU, DBA, etc.?

    From Oracle via support contract?

    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.
    Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.

    I have Oracle MS-DOS Version 5.1C

    I actually have a legal copy of Oracle Tools version 5.1C which includes SQL Language, SQL Plus, SQL Forms, SQL Menu, and SQL Report Writer that I would sell. According to the packing slip there are 20 booklets/manuals and 22 diskettes in the box. Box is still sealed so I won't be opening them now. I can send pictures or answer any questions.
