Any Protel Users left?

I have picked up a side job and the customer wants simulations of the design before cutting the check for prototyping. They have provided me access to Protel 99SE, which I have used in the past but I only ever needed to use the predefined models (lucky me). I have managed to find all the missing models for the parts in the circuit on the internet but I'm having problems getting the simulation to run with those models. It will run with substituted predefined parts, but I know the simulation results are wrong as I don't have the right transistor models in the schematic.

Is there any one out there still using Protel 99SE or remembers the program enough to help? I can provided more specifics on the problem, if anyone can help.

TIA.
 
I have more information. The reason I initiaited the post was strictly a Protel question. I could not get the simulator to find the model. I have figured out and solved that problem. But...now Protel doesn't like my model. Its says there are toomany parameters.

The model is for a MOSFET, N-channel, part number BUZ11:

Any ideas why Protel does not like these models?

They are older parts and took a lot of web digging to find them.
