Downloading Older Version of BB Desktop Software

Hello all!

I've just downloaded MagicBerry so that I can get my SMS onto my PC. It works well for the backups I made a long time ago, in the IPD format, but is failing with the newer backups. I'd therefore like to use an older version of the desktop software so that I can get an up to date IPD to open with MagicBerry.

 

Can anywhere point me to a download of the installer for a version of the desktop software that can do this (I think the version I had used was version 5)?

Please use plain text.

I can't seem to download these without subscribing to the 'gold' membership.
