If Adobe no longer provides download, you may need to go into the aftermarket and find someone selling legacy media. I see one on Amazon for US$50 for example. Most such "used' products are going to have spoiled or missing CD codes, but that shouldn't be a problem, if your license is a CD code.

'Adobe FrameMaker: All versions - Software Informer. The first links to the second, and on the second I basically find out that it's not available. That is, it offers only a download of FM12. Actually, my search turned up that Amazon listing you cited. There the picture of the package reminded me that I had that very package buried away somewhere. I just had not used it in 10 years. Anyway, bottom line is I was able to install that version and it works fine. So, thanks.
