What happened to Elan Digital Systems Ltd's website?

ElanRoughly a year or so ago, British firm Elan Digital Systems Ltd went into liquidation. We, like many others, expected their assets to be purchased by another firm, or at the very least, for their liquidator to make some announcement of the disposition of their assets.

Unfortunately, that never happened, and around December of 2012, Elan's website went dark. Had we known this was going to happen, we would have archived the contents of their site. This leave countless Elan customers in a bind, with no access to support, troubleshooting, or download pages. From our standpoint, customers deserve access to these items for the foreseeable future.

Fortunately, the Internet Archives Wayback Machine archived the Elan site on November 5, 2012. Unfortunately, their are some binaries that aren't archived. Over the next few months, we will download and archive all the binaries and important support documents we can. We will also go through out remaining stock of Elan items and make ISO image copies of install CDROMS for items that aren't available on the website. Check back here for updates on this project.

Furthermore, we wrote to Elan's liquidator requesting the files for Elan's defunct website. Having the original files from their server would speed up the archival process. For customers interested in contacting the liquidator directly, we will provide the information below. Perhaps if enough customers write them, they will be disposed to helping out with this important project.

Elan liquidator:

James Richard Tickell and Carl Derek Faulds of Portland Business & Financial Solutions Limited, 1640 Parkway, Solent Business Park, Whiteley, Fareham, Hampshire, PO15 7AH

Does anyone know if there is a similar Win7 driver available for the USBpulse100 (as well as the above USBscope50)? Your help would be gratefully appreciated! Thank you.

Sorry @庞中原, we haven't had the USBPulse100 in stock for years.

I have an old USBPulse100 if you want to arrange shipping for it.

We have an extra USBPULSE100 if you still need it.
