Yes, I have all of the new extended privileges set so that this is not an issue, I believe.
I am wondering if it has something to do with the installation process of the Filemaker Pro. I currently have a trial version of 16 installed, and I'm wondering if it did not install the fmp:: internet protocol. I do not know how to check that.
I've made a very simple test using the basic Contacts starter solution and a new script called "sillyscript" that just throws a dialog box up. I use this syntax in a web viewer...
And all it does is tell me that it is "Loading: "fmp://$/Contacts?script=sillyscript"" within the web viewer.
Would greatly appreciate any help. Thanks, -tig
You can check it with opening shared file
or file in document folder
Here is document for Windows how it is registered.

Thanks all for the replies. It turned out to be something quite simple and frustrating.
I had Filemaker 16 installed as a trial version, testing my solution to see if it was safe to upgrade. In this configuration, only Filemaker 15 was using the FMP:// internet protocol, so when the FM 16 application ran that call, it actually was attempting to open up the earlier version of Filemaker to open the directed file and script.
That was failing with no outward sign, message, etc. The way I figured this out was to see that FM 15 kept on opening up when I was testing this.
The only thing that solved it was to install FM 16 Advanced as a paid version, and then it all worked fine.
The support folks at Filemaker helped out, but they had been insistent that the trial version was no different than the real version, which turned out not to be exactly correct because obviously there was some confusion in the registration of the internet protocol during installation with the operating system (which was Mac).
Thanks again for your help. I hope this page helps some pour confused soul in the future. -tig
The trial version is exactly the same as retail. I regularly download the trial of the latest patch version and edit the assisted install file with my license information.
The trial version very likely is the same as retail, however the FM 16 installer did not bless FM 16 as the primary program to open up .fmp12 files (versus my existing FM 15 version on the hard drive. This led to internet protocol calls failing because when a web viewer attempted to run a script from the file, instead of doing so, it attempted to open up FM 15.
