Runtime database startup...



I have a large database that is shared on FileMaker Server 13.  I currently have another database file that I use to put on user's desktops to allow them to start the database without first starting FileMaker.  The startup database consists of a splash screen and then a simple script:  

Allow User Abort [Off]
Show/Hide Toolbars [Hide]
Open File ["XXXXXXXXXX"]       (specified as remote file location on server)
Close File [Current File]


This works great when running as a FileMaker file, but when I convert it to runtime, it fails, saying it can not locate the the "XXXXXXXXX" (the hosted file on the network).  Why is the runtime not locating the file in the script as it does when using the startup as FileMaker file????   any suggestions on how to accomplish this.  I want to be able to email everyone a runtime that will start up the main database???
