Needing db2 udb version 6.5 or 7.x for windows (desesperately)

P: n/a
I've got a backup from a product that needs to be evaluated, and
probably migrated to an actual database engine but the trial version
available on IBM site (8.1 I think) can't restore the backup:

SQL2514N The RESTORE was not successful. The backup used to restore
the database contained a database with a release number that is not
compatible with the installed version of the database manager.

Is there a trial archive or any copy of it on the internet? (I've been
searching for a while with no success)

Thanks

DB2 V8 will restore a Version 7 backup, so your backup file is older than version 7.
