    Open Remote DB w/ URL Protocol Broken?

      Hi All,

       

      FYI: This is a Windows only deployment, no Macs at all.

       

      In versions past I used to create a desktop shortcut to open the hosted database. Example:

       

      fmp://10.20.30.40/filename.fmp12

       

      Here's a reference:

       

      Opening shared databases remotely using a URL | FileMaker

       

      This would open the database directly without going through the Launch Center. With FM version 16 the OS (Windows 10) doesn't recognize that as a good target.. It says the file cannot be found.

       

      Does this method still work with version 16?

       

      Thanks!
