Open filemaker db by command line parameter?


I've searched everywhere for this and let me make this clear: I'm not trying to open a file remotely or create a shortcut on the desktop.


What I'm looking to do is just pass a fp7 file onto the FileMaker Pro.exe executable.  Usually this is done with a flag, ie "blablabla/FileMaker Pro.exe /file myfile.fp7" but I can't find anywhere where these flags are (if they exist)


A good example is when you take an fp7 file and drop it onto the FileMaker Pro.exe application.  THAT is what I want to do from the command line (or actually from something else).
