Double clicking file to open causes error message


New to FM Pro here and am using the 30 day trial version of FM Pro 11 on a Mac running OS X 10.6.4.

When I create a new database, from scratch, or from the starter solutions, I'm finding that I cannot double-click the file icon to open FM Pro and run the database. For example, if I double click the file Inventory.fp7, I get the following error message in a dialog box:  

"The document "Inventory.fp7" could not be opened. FileMaker Pro cannot open files in the "Filemaker Document" format."

The file does show up in the FM Quick Start Screen where I can open it by double clicking.

The file is in the same folder that FM Pro resides in.
