Developing Louis' theme, I would contact every ex-employee who ever
worked on this application (I assume you have already tried all the
current employees). They may have an old backup tape they kept at
home in case the office building burned down. They may know of backups
on decomissioned servers that are probably sitting quietly in a corner
of your office somewhere.
Even an out of date copy will give you a huge head start.
