Opening a Filemaker FIle with Open URL script step


I have a script with just one step in it:

Open URL [No dialog; "fmp7://~/host"]

where host.fp7 is the file I'm trying to get to open. Right now I have that file on my desktop, where I also have the file I'm trying to open it with...

I get this error "The file “host” could not be opened.  Either the host is not available, or the file is not available on that host."

I can't use open file because this is to open files that will be developed after the launch of the version I'm working on now, and using Open URL I don't have to update the client version each time I need it to open another file. I will just have a hosted database with a table that has files on it, and on clicking it set the path to use in the URL with a variable... But I can't even get it to work without variables right now...


WHAT AM I DOING WRONG??? What am I missing? Is there some requirement or option to set for it to work?
