I have this software. Mine is a paid copy but I don't remember if it requires a registration key or not. I used to use it regularly and it worked well for transferring information to my co-workers' Palm devices. 

If you can't get in touch with Bob, I can dig through my files for the pkg file and documentation.

Their website is still up, but the email address (while it doesn't bounce) produces no reply.
