I have a customer who has a legitimate copy of FileMaker Pro 8.5. They had an application developed for their business which they want me to extract data from. I need the original CD so I can install ODBC drivers for Windows XP. They can't find the disk. FileMaker don't offer it as a download on their web site any more. Is there somewhere I can get it from? I'm not looking for a cracked version and I'm not looking for a product key.

Thanks ALFA007. I already downloaded MDAC 2.8 SP1 but it would not install on XP SP3. I need the CD for the ODBC driver.

My client managed to find the disk after an extensive search. Just as well because I don't think it is available on-line.
