    Using the open url script step in FM12

    Victor_Gentinetta

      Would be most grateful for assistance with the open url script step.

       

      I distribute launcher files to all my clients that utilise the open url script step to open a file hosted on a remote server.

       

      In FM 7 - 11 I have (for many years) successfully used:

      Open URL ["fmp7://xx.xxx.xxx.xxx/FileMakerFileName"]

      With xx.xxx.xxx.xxx being the fixed IP address of my server.

       

      For FM 12 I simply adjusted the fmp prefix to reflect version 12 but am finding that this is simply not connecting to the remote file.

      Open URL ["fmp12://xx.xxx.xxx.xxx/FileMakerFileName"]

       

      Any thoughts?

       

      With kind regards

       

      Victor.
