FMPA 14 Container launches referenced PDFs in external application

Post

Hi,

Just updated to FMPA 14 and a container field is behaving strangely. Instead of opening as an interactive PDF in the container field viewer, when I open a referenced file I get a dialog box showing download progress, followed by the PDF launching in an instance of my default application (Acrobat in this case). 

Notes:

         
  • Referenced files are stored on a separate volume than the database file.
  •      
  • I've only updated my client to FMPA 14, the database file is still being served by FMS 13.
  •      
  • Not sure if either of these matter.
  •      
  • Other clients who've not yet updated to 14 are not having this issue.

Anybody have a clue how to get the PDFs back to opening in the viewer, and not launching the external application? Thanks!
