      Trouble installing FM ODBC driver

      Post

      Hi.  I'm trying to access an existing FileMaker Pro database using ODBC.  I'm using Filemaker Pro 10 on Windows Vista.  The "ODBC and JDBC Guide" contains this instruction:

       

      In the folder \xDBC\ODBC Client Driver Installer, double-click setup.

       

      But I don't have a folder that matches that path.  I do have a folder:

       

      C:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Pro 10\Extensions\xDBC Support

       

      but it does not contain a setup file.  It does contain a bin subdirectory, which made me think it was already installed by the main FM installer, but when I open the ODBC Data Source Administrator, it does not show a FileMaker driver.

       

      I also have:

       

      C:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Pro 10\Setup

       

      but the only .exe it contains is openssl.exe.


      Can anyone help?

       

      Thanks,
