probably not the answer, but a step
use this to launch
Part of your solution might be to create a "launcher" file in Filemaker and place it on the desktop of each client machine.
No data, Just a blank layout and one script:
Open File [Use the specify button to get to the remotely hosted file]
Close File [Current File]
Use file options to select this script to run when the file opens.
Now, when the users double-click this file, it'll will find and connect to the hosted file without having to go through the extra steps of selecting a host computer and hosted file.
Thanks.. I will try that....
