    Dynamically open local files from a multiuser hosted solution

    lexan

      Hi everybody!

       

      I am getting older day by day and I am no more able to figure me out to do what I described in the title.

      In short words I have a complicated situation where I need to :

      1) maintain a .fp7 report template ( a file...) into a container field DONE!

      2) export it on user request into his Documents folder. DONE!

      3) open this file runing a script on opening

       

      Step #3 is the problem!

       

      When i was young I was able to accomplish this task with AppleScript or with an Apple Event but now I am no more able to write down a three lines working AS script or anything else can solve my problem. (tell app "FileM..." open "Drive:filename.fp7" does not work)

      The best I was able to get with AS was a -1713 error (No user interaction allowed) and nothig better with any other attempts: FMP7 protocols, strange paths as Data Source description, ... nothing!

       

      So does anybody out there knows how a hosted solution can dynamically open a local file without install anything on the client?

       

      Thank You so much in advance!
