        Subject: help with old software

An old mate of mine has written to ask for help with databases created 
in the distant past in PC software called IdeaList. He has a Windows 
copy of IdeaList bought some 20 years ago but has lost the product key. 
Bekon, the company who bought the software from Blackwells, has long 
since disappeared. Would anyone here know how the databases might be 
unlocked, or perhaps more accurately, opened up in any current software?

Thanks for any suggestions.
