We had a PlasmaTrace instrument that ran under OS/2. When we installed a
new PC (becuase of HDD issues) we had to replace the OS. We used an OS/2
clone but can't remember what it was. We got the OS from Mike Spencer who
used to work for VG/MicroMass. He may still lurk on this mailing list or
someone may know his contact information. I would search on OS/2 clones.
I remember it being freeware.
Can't help you on the Fisons software.
