If I take it right, the PL2100 is not supported by WINext... I have
been advised that the interface requires 1995 vintage software. It is
unclear whether CWB is suprting this or not. I am not in the middle of
this project - just trying to help colleagues...
Open to suggestions - this was a good one.
One thing which might work is a "Wanted" ad at Labx.com... I've had
some fair success getting photo-copies of less-than-common analytical
equipment user manuals that way.
Another could be to do a publication search of experimental sections for
common polymer journals (JPS A&B, etc), and contact any university
professors who reference collecting data with a PL2100... Tell 'em
you'll barter the software for a summer intern position for one of their
undergrads. Then you can get a kid to teach you the ins and outs of the
software, too ;-)
Last option (likely the priciest) would be third-party extrusion
software vendors like http://www.deltapep.com/ Brabenders are common
enough, and if they are a software vendors, they might be more likely
than even Brabender themselves to have some old code lying around.

Why not try Brabender. It migth cost you something but at least you
are sure you get the software complete. I had the same problem in
Holland and Brabender helped me quick (and while it we had bougt from
them for free).

I believe my cohorts have approached CWB - as I understand it, they
were told that a copy of 10+ year old software, with no value to
anyone on Earth lacking a PL2100, that may well require vintage
hardware to run... Will cost $1200. And with no support, most likely.
I understand the last tech that came out on a visit stated that he was
surprised that CWB would even sell it at all - few if any techs are
trained on it, those elder it seems. Then again, he wouldn't even demo
the software while he was sitting around waiting for barrel temps to
