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 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,
