As a few may have heard I managed to joyously resurrect my O2 from the depths of the server room ... albeit with a bung HD that needed formatting.
My problem now is that I need to get SoftWindows 4.0 to work (so I can do some JADE programming), I have all the original install CDs, but no paperwork ... which I need to get the serial number.
SGI told me that I could just email them a request; and they'd give me the key (because I have/had a permanent license). Take a look at their response!
The Softwindows product has an "Expired" Support status with SGI.
Products in the "Expired" mode are no longer sold, supported or
distributed by SGI in any form.

Bummer. Can anyone help? Or even explain how the licensing works on Irix? I'm used to just backing up preference files on my Macs!
