Desktop Menu items do not work on Web Direct

I am upgrading FMP12 to FMP16 and migrating from Mac to Windows.  I would also like to setup Web Direct for the users; however, after talking with FMP Technical Support I was told that the FMP application I am working on has been customized.  The problem we are having is the Customization was basically done to create a Menu for the users to access different db folders that are part of this solution.  Inside the Desktop application the buttons work fine; however, after getting all of the folders recognized by Web Direct and opening the online page with the Customized Menu, I found that 2 of the buttons don't work. I looked inside the Script Workplace and found that the buttons with the following type of syntax are not working:

Open File [Open hidden:Off; "TPACalendar"]


The scripts with this code syntax work fine:

Go to Layout ["Events" (Events); Animation:None]

Select Window [Current Window]

Show/Hide Toolbars [Show]

Perform Script ["Zoom"]

Adjust Window [Resize to Fit]


Can someone shed some light on why this is happening?  If I can't get this working I will just install FMP on every machine rather than giving them a URL to sign on.


Thank you,
