Old Timers Help -Opening software from an ancient Bosch Rexroth PLC CL300 ZE300.

I've trying to open and view some code code from a ancient Bosch CL200 ZE300 PLC we still have running a line. The files are mostly .P30 files and one .scs and one .p3A file. The files were found on some floppys found with a none functioning Bosch PG4 programmer which were lat use 20 years ago to modify the program.
I was under the impression I could use the program winsps to open and look at this PLC logic. So I downloaded the demo version of 1.5 and installed it on a Windows 3.1 virtual. First thing its this software is in Germain not English but with the help of google translate camera app I found out that it will not open any of the file extension mentioned above so I'm a bit stuck. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have had experience with the Bosch PLCs. The P3A file is the compiled program file. The P30 files are module files. The SCS file is the symbol file. Are there any IFO files? Those would be text files that can be opened with Notepad or Wordpad or even Microsoft word. This would allow you to see the code. If you are looking to go online or edit you will need either the PG3, or there is a DOS software called Profi that requires a hardware dongle that plugs into the parallel port of the computer, or the Winsps. I have not had much luck with the WinSPS.
