Virtual PC will not read FileMaker Pro CD

Summary

Virtual PC will not read FileMaker Pro CD

Description of the issue

I have FileMaker Pro 9 Advanced on a PowerBook G4 running Leopard, which I have used to develop an intended runtime application that will be used on a PC running Windows.Realising that a bound runtime solution is platform-specific, I intended to install the PC version of FileMaker on my Mac under Virtual PC to create the final runtime application - but Virtual PC fails to read the FileMaker CD, reporting (when I try to look at the CD using Windows Explorer):Disk is not formattedWindows cannot read from this disk. The disk might be corrupted, or it could be using a format that is not compatible with Windows.The CD is not corrupt as, when I put it in a friend's PC, Windows Explorer shows the files on it with no problem.The problem seems to be that Windows on the Virtual PC is only seeing the CD as Mac formatted. How do I overcome this, and install FileMaker on the Virtual PC?
