Converting FMP 11 files to FMP 12 in compiled application (MAC)

Post

     I'm updating an application written in FMP11 Advanced to FMP 12 Advanced (mainly to take advantage of Mavericks compatibility).  I notice in the FMP 12 development environment, opening an FMP 11 file (including USR files) triggers a dialog box that results in a converted file in a very short time.

     Unfortunately the behavior is different in the compiled app using the FMP 12 Runtime engine.  There, when I attempt open an FMP 11 file, I get a message box stating that this file must be converted to the current format before it can be opened and clicking the OK button just kicks me out of the app.

     I'm hoping that somebody here can tell me what to do to make FMP 11/12 conversion happen in a compiled environment - there must be a way!  Otherwise I'm stuck with customers e-mailing me their FMP 11 files, performing the conversion myself and sending the converted files back to the customer - awkward!  Please help!
