Trying to open an archived project from AE 5.5 (Windows) from 2004

Hey there everyone. I'm trying to open an After Effects Version 5.5 project from 2004 . Obviously this wont happen in CC 2018 as it says "This file was created with an older version of After Effects [5.5 (Windows)] and can't be opened" which is of course understandable.

I've found some threads with suggestions about downloading a trial of CS5 (which I think is the last version you can open AE5.5/6 in) but either the links are broken, they link to the current Adobe site or if I try and instal the download it goes all screwy (I shall try and do it again and post what it says).

This page gives you the backwards compatibility
https://theblog.adobe.com/opening-after-effects-projects-from-previous-vers... but, again, I'm not having any luck actually finding a version that works on my 2018 Mac.

Does anyone know of any services where they still have AE 5.5 or 6 installed on a machine? I think I was working on a PC at the time. For some reason I feel there is someone out there who has a niche market for these services but can't for the life of me find them!!

Many thanks in advance,

Jim
