Nah. I had a little fun bumping the other one, but these are extremely ancient OGL encounters from before Golarion was formally conceived, and were written for 3.5, rather than PF1E proper. Even as a historical product, these are wildly out of date now and I wouldn't be surprised if the source files are missing at this point. Trying to convert them to PF2E would be nightmarish, and interest in the PDFs as historical documents would be low enough to not even justify the labor of PDF conversion, and that's if the source files survive.
Your best bet at this point is eBay; you can find each Compleat Encounter new-in-box for ~US$25-30. They'll come with the minis and cards describing the full encounter, which was meant to be plugged in to a wider adventure.
They are, at least, a fun time capsule into pre-Pathfinder Paizo and how Paizo was surviving prior to Pathfinder #1: Burnt Offerings launching.

Yeah, the metal minis ended up being not nearly as cost-efficient as a lot of other options. On top of this, because the adventures were *so* short and had to slot in to other things (and thus couldn't have real narrative hooks), their quality tended to vary wildly, as you may note from the reviews. (There are a few Compleat Encounters missing, as well, as they went on to... other things.)
On the whole, it's a neat idea that still kind of worked in the 2005-2007 timeframe of their production, but was already kind of on the outs. They make for neat historical artifacts, but in a Pathfinder-having world (these debuted before PF existed!) there's better ways of accomplishing the goals.
