 The MIFfing example isn't locked, unless he locked it inadvertently.

Since the Finder is generally always running, you can launch FrameMaker 6
getting the Finder to call it by it's application file id, as follows. This
way it will never ask you where FrameMaker is located. You don't need to
worry about the path to the application.

tell application "Finder"
open application file id "Fm60"
end tell
