After dialling five HP numbers, speaking to about 20 different departments, and consulting two different HP resellers, we are no closer to getting our hands on it (at any cost).
The CD is described here http://h30097.www3.hp.com/cplus/spd.html . As you can see, the only ordering information is this pithy statement: "contact your local HP office".
If anyone knows the proper contact info within HP for Alpha software, I would appreciate it. Australian or US contact points will do, provided the US contact points are internationally diallable (no 1800 numbers).
We have v6.5 installed on a system that is being decommissioned, and we intend to transfer the licence (license) across to the new server.
Solved! Go to Solution.

You can find the latest Tru64 C++ kit on the hp ftp site. That should get you what you need to install the software to the new server.
The CD that you would be looking for is the Tru64 UNIX Software Product Library CD. Hopefully the download will suffice.

Yes that worked.
1. Downloaded the CXX651V42.tar file from the above link,
2. Expand the tar file
3. Installed it (setld -l
That's got me across the line.
The only thing is that it's not the latest version of the compiler ...
$ cxx -V
Compaq C++ V6.5-042 for HP Tru64 UNIX V5.1B (Rev. 2650)
Compiler Driver V6.5-042 (cxx) cxx Driver
... (the latest is version 7.1).
Nor does it include a way of getting the licence (license) for those who require one.
Anyway, thanks, Duane.

Yes that's what I did on Monday, so my problem is over.
I'm just a little concerned for other people who are starting out fresh: they don't have a licence at all, they have plenty of cash, the required hardware, but nowhere to buy the licence from.
There's also a faint possibility my department might be split: same issue arises.

The usual reaction after I read the part number to the various HP consultants is ... "that's a weird part number, where did you get that from?".
One of the issues is that the HP reseller we usually deal with - a good dealer in Sydney (Australia) - has found that most of his contacts within HP have been laid off.
The customer service experience has been pretty disappointing, to be quite frank. I've got the download (and an existing licence), but if not I would have been trying HP contact points in the U.S. or even New Zealand.
