fmnet File Path issue in Send Event Action

My intentions: to create a menu bar that can open other filemaker apps

environment:

windows with a server/client configuration.

the apps are hosted on the server and can be individually opened through the filemaker pro app selection menu, but I'd like for them to be opened more fluidly through the interface rather than using the File -> Open menu option.

 

from what I can tell, this is achieved through a Send Event action, and the documentation appears to use this as an example path

fmnet:/192.168.10.10/Databases/test.fmp12

I get an error stating:

There is a problem with one the paths in the list. Please correct the syntax of the highlighted item and try again.

 

I do not get this error when targeting a local app (acrobat for example), only when targeting one of our hosted apps.
