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!
