Linking to an MRI image

Dear FMP gurus


I am using a container field to store a reference to external files. I like the fact that one can double click them and they open in the application in which they were created. This all works well until I start storing refrences to MRI images. An MRI is similar to a movie in that it has many frames making up the complete picture. Because of this an MRI requires a viewer application. In this case we are using something called E Film. Here is what happens, the first time one clicks on the MRI reference in the container, it opens up correctly in E Film. When one clicks another MRI, E Film comes to the front but it still displays the first MRI. Can anyone perhaps think of somethong I could do differently to overcome this issue?


The setup is as follows: FMP 12, FMS 12 and Windows XP and 7. All images are stored on a shared drive on the server.


thank you
