AppleScript and Automator to schedule scripts

Post

     OK... I need some help here...  I am trying to get some scripts to run automatically.  I have everything working with the exception of this last piece..

     When FileMaker 13 opens it has a "Open New or Existing Window" dialog that needs to be closed before a database or script will run.  How can I automatically close or bypass this window?

     Here is my applescript I am using to open the database:

     on run
     tell application "FileMaker Pro"
     activate
     delay 5
     tell application "FileMaker Pro" to close every window  --- does not seem to be closing the dialog box
     getURL "FMP://ip address/database name.fmp12" - never opens because the dialog box is open
     delay 10
     end tell
     end run
