I was on a project once where the powers that be decided to clean up our library and threw away old documents, even those that we needed. Very incompetent of them. Sorry you lost your documentation. When I called the company, they no longer had the documents since they had only started to do something called Configuration Management. Very incompetent of them also.

Anyway, even though you cannot call them, you can write to them via this link:

Since your documentation is missing, wouldn't be surprised if your proof of purchase is missing also. If that is the case, pretend to want to compare their latest products with their 20 year old products by exploring any online documentation they may have. But don't be surprised if they also did not have configuration management either.

10 years ago we decided on Magic Software for developing business applications.
After not more than a year we resigned and threw it in the bin.

It's a complete different way of programming compared to any other programming language I know. You may be fast, but it essentially lacks in programming flexibility and licenses are really expensive.

https://www.magicsoftware.com/ is there it belongs to

Their site (noted above)

https://www.magicsoftware.com/

They have some documentation but I don't see any for your version.

Have you contacted them to see if they have any documentation either online or available.

I can't find much on that version.
