Opening SAP Windows GUI from SAPUI5

Hi all, I'd like to be able to open a SAP Windows GUI from a SAPUI5 app. I'm trying to use OData to accomplish this using the CALL TRANSACTION... ABAP keywords on my Odata Server, but I get the DYNPRO_SEND_IN_BACKGROUND short dump when I try this. Function Module TH_CREATE_FOREIGN_MODE works as long as the user has at least one SAP Windows GUI open with the same system/client combination, but with that function I don't have the ability to send parameter values like I do with CALL TRANSACTION... does anyone know a workaround for this situation? I was also thinking that perhaps I could make a seperate program that has CALL TRANSACTION that I could call with RFC (again, if the SAPUI5 user has at least one GUI open), but I have yet to try. Has anyone dealt with a similiar situation before?

***Note that I don't want to open a SAP Web GUI, but our local Windows GUI.
