How do I make a Desktop icon to execute a FM application?

Post

I need to move my current FM application to another server temporarily in order to repair the old one.  I've successfuly installed the FM Server on the new server and moved the application, BUT when I click on a 'revised' desktop icon which points to the new server, I get an error message "rolodex.fp7" could not be opened.  Either the host is not available, etc."  If I access the application directly via Filemaker Pro on the desktop and Open it Remotely...it works just fine.  So I think I have it installed correctly...I just don't have a good executable icon anymore.  I've inherited this application and know next to nothing about FileMaker.  Help please!
