Call Back & Launch Another App Feature

I am try to call a scanner (I have tried CNS, and it does not work for my needs, tried Pic2shop Pro, again does not work). There is an another app (Auotniq) scanner that works great, but they provide no documentation on a call back feature or launch feature.


Is there a way to call another app from FM Go or does that app have to allow that? Same question on callback, is that something the called app has to have built in or can Filemaker capture the results and return it. The app presently puts the information I want on the clipboard, so if I manually launch the app then relaunch FM Go, I can run a 'paste' script to get the data I want.


Any thoughts are appreciated.
