Using the open url script step in FM12

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.
