I have Promark2 observation files from 2005. Sadly I do not have either the post processing results or the Thales/Ashtech software. The observation are several NYC monuments that no longer exist.

I would appreciate direction or assistance with processing these files.

What are the file extensions?

I recently was given a Magellan ProMark X-CP, which is older but may share some of the design with yours, as it is my vague recollection they are built on Ashtech technology. Both are 10-channel L1-only code and carrier receivers.  I found the Magellan MSTAR software for download on somebody's site.  I have it running on a Win XP computer and have shown it will read data from this receiver, but have not gone far enough to actually process sessions with it.  If that reads your file format, it should be able to write RINEX.

Those extensions do not match up with the Magellan files, so my idea won't get you anywhere.

Convert the files from the ProMark 2 to RINEX, then process in 'your favorite tool'.

By chance, I just made a video on this exact process. It is targeted at post WNRO, but same process still:
