COBRAS Import 2.1.17 (4/14/2000) - Download Now. NOTE: this is a very old version of COBRAS Import that can import these very old Connection 1.2 backups - it should NOT be used for any other imports - it's years old and missing many data items from modern COBRAS backups. If you have a Connection 1.2 system or a backup from one, you must use this old version of Import as it's the last to support Connection 1.2 backups which went EOS 10 years ago.  This version will NOT run on modern Windows installs such as Windows 10 or Server 2012 - you will have to run it on Windows 7 or earlier.
