WANTED - Early Versions of:

- VWS (VAX/VMS Workstation Software) V1.1, V2.0, V3.0
Help please, I want to run my MicroVAX I/IIs on contemporary software!
Any media (TK50 tape cartridge, RX50 floppies, 9-track tape, ...) , any condition
(Installation media, BACKUP Save Sets, Disk/Tape Images, ...)
I can help out with other old VAX software
This actually brings up an interesting question with regards to the VMS
Hobbyist License. The Hobbyist License allows for the use of at least the
OS (I am not sure about VWS). However, the license keys from the Hobbyist
License won't be valid prior to VAX/VMS V5 will they? I believe V4.x and
prior use a different licensing scheme and the licenses were on TK50's or
other distribution media.
Somewhere up in storage I have a dead RD53 with VMS 4.x on it, it died
before I could make a backup. :-( One of these years I want to try to
revive the drive and get a backup of it.
I'd love to get VAX/VMS V4.x running on a MicroVAX II, but realistically
V5.5-2 is far more practical and useable.
