In order to configure my Aladin diving computer, I built the interface as described here. The software "DataTalk" can be used to configure the diving computer. However, the Windows version (which can be downloaded on the manufacturer's website together with "DataTrak") only works with an original "MemoMouse" – which is quite expensive for just using it once (for configuration).

The DOS version of DataTalk seems to work with the self-built interface. However, all the links I find are outdated since about 2006 or 2009.

Do you know where you can still get the DOS version?

    @gerrit did that, thx! However, I think divers who have this program are more likely to be around here. – Scz Jul 26 '15 at 15:39
  • yes there is always an issue with stuff that fit into more than one category. – AquaAlex Jul 27 '15 at 3:46

After a little digging, I found this link on the Internet Archive, which seems to be what you've looking for. The zip file unpacks successfully and I had no trouble installing DataTrak and DataTalk (version 1.6) under the DOSBox emulator. They both seem to run fine under emulation as well, though I don't have the requisite hardware to test the functionality. Here's a screenshot of DataTalk running under DOSBox:
