InheritScope in CDF player

Hi everyone,

I am dealing with an application in Mathematica where I want to have a CDF file, where in the main notebook I create a secondary notebook that controls parameters of the main notebook. In order to implement it I used the InheritScope property of DynamicModule. The toy code is the next:

Button["NewNotebook",CreateDocument[DynamicModule[{},Grid[{{Button["x+1",x=x+1],Dynamic[x]}}] ,InheritScope->True]]], Button["x+1",x=x+1],

In this case, in the main notebook appear two buttons, the second one x+1, just increases the value of x, the first one NewNotebook opens a new notebook that can change the value of "x" in the main notebook (And that belongs to the parent DynamicModule). The important thing in the implementation is when I save the file as a normal notebook and the reopen it in a new Kernel session, when I pressed the NewNotebook button, the connection between the x on the main notebook and the x in the secondary notebook remains. But when I have the same document saved as a CDF file, and the open it with CDF player, whenever I click the x+1 button in the main notebook the x in the main notebook is increased as expected, when I click the NewNotebook button, effectively a new window is created, but it loses all the Dynamic properties.

Can the example be programmed in order to work in CDF player?
