Our customer needs to restore data from an old dds4 tape. Backups were made with Backup Exec. Is there any way to download Backup Exec somwhere thatr supports dds4 tapes?

I doubt that there is a supported verion of Backup Exec that also supports DDS4 tape drives.
I would start with http://www.backupexec.com/compatibility and see what BE versions support what hardware and software. If you are restoring more than simple files, you need to pay attention to agent versions, etc.
I believe that newer versions of Backup Exec will generally still work with most older hardware, but it obviously would not be officially suported.
