    If a product is no longer commercially available ( parts list cd) how are potential users of such supposed to be able to reference items for the product to which it refers? Does this lack of availability affect how the original (the cd) copyright is applied? In this case what are users supposed to do and what would they gain by being able to access the cd other than trying to sell it? I would think that sharing within a closed environment ( the 260's) with a declaration to not use for commercial purposes for a very limited market (260/V8) should be considered acceptable.

    Just for information purposes, I have got a copy of this CD and have run it on my computer running Windows 10 64 bit. It's not a particularly easy interface to navigate and I am not sure it's particularly accurate information but it does work.

    Mine would not, Nich. When installing it complained that IE 5.1 or greater was not installed. Tried to change the INI file on a disk-copy of the CD, without success. Maybe an older CD that I have? Anyway, it did install on the XP machine.

    Depending on how techy you're feeling there are ways to install an old version of IE and fool it into using it, it's not all that straight forward though and TBH Rimmers online one is pretty much just the same.
