Open File Script Step will not open designated files

My open file script step does not work. Whenever it is activated, such as in an opening script, I get an error message that the designated new file cannot be found, which then requires that I find and click onto the file in order to open it. The files in question were all converted fm7 files. I am currently running FileMaker 13 Advanced. I have attempted several times to add the files through the Manage External files window. I have also tried to add the files in Manage Relationships window. When I try the latter, it will work while the files remain open, but once I close the main file and reopen it, the Manage Relationship window indicates that the file is no longer available. Any ideas? So far, my only successful work-around is to click open all the related files at the same time.
