Annoying problem with older GR4 VST insert missing?

I've have this annoying problem currently using Cubase 6.5 with Guitar Rig5.
It's all about opening old project files and finding missing older GR4 plugins.

I have projects that were done a while ago using say Cubase 5 and GR4 back when they were my current versions.
Since then I have obviously upgraded to GR5 and Cubase 6.5.

I thought I had read at NI that all the presets that were in GR4 were still in GR5, so I assumed it would just load the same GR4 version VST plugin with the GR5 version....but that is not the case!
Every time I open one of these old projects it tells me the GR4 preset is missing and just gives me "????" in the preset name. It knows it was "Guitar Rig 4" as listed in the plugin name and error message, but nothing about which preset?
So I was wondering if anyone here knows a way to at least figure out what the preset was instead of the "?????".
If I can figure that out at least I could have a clue to which GR5 preset might be close or correct!
I thought maybe re-installing GR4 could work and actually tried copying the GR4.dll VST file into Cubase6 VST folder, but it still doesn't show the preset title and then also tells me GR4 needs to be activated!.
Not even sure I can do that?....maybe?
I do still have GR4 disks but that seems like a major hassle...but doable if that's the only solution.
So......anyone know a way to help me recover the original preset used in GR4?
Also curious if anyone else has had to deal with this annoyance and/or runs both GR4/5 together successfully...frustrated....
Thank you for your time.....!
