Captivate 5.5 and MS Office 2010

Hello

 

Can anybody tell me if Captivate 5.5 is MS Office 2010 compatible? Can I publish a project to Word 2010?

 

Thank you.

    Hi there

     

    If you are talking about creating handouts or some such, it works.  But you cannot simply take a project and publish it as a Word document like you can a SWF. You first have to choose Print and then choose a template.

     

    Cheers... Rick

    Do not know if I understand correctly: it will always publish to doc, not to docx but I have no issues with compatibility.

    LOL, now I'm not sure *I* understand!

     

    Are you saying that you have both Word 2007 AND Word 2010 on your system and you expected Word 2010 to open?

     

    Generally speaking, I believe it will open whatever has been configured as the default for opening Word documents.

     

    Cheers... Rick

    Hello again

     

    To my knowledge there is no "faux 2007". You must have 2007 on your system in order to be seeing this.

     

    Cheers... Rick

    I believe Rick is correct.  I've seen instances where a PC had an earlier version of MS Office installed and was then upgraded to a later version, but the new install did not remove all vestiges of the previous install. So that could explain why Captivate is pulling up MS Word 2007.

     

    Do you happen to know if this PC arrived out of the box with MS Office 2010, or was it originally running MS 2007 and then upgraded?  In the corporate environment this type of thing happens all the time.

     

    Another thing to consider is that, to my knowledge, Microsoft does not now offer a true upgrade from Office 2007.  When I tried to buy an upgrade for my own development laptop (as I have always done in past years when new Office versions came out) I found that I could only purchase a full version of MS Office 2010.  There was no upgrade installer.

     

    So if your PC was upgraded to 2010, it's quite possible that Office 2007 is still sitting there in the background somewhere...unseen...until Captivate happened to call it up.

     

    When you drill down to Program FIles > Microsoft Office how many Office# folders do you happen to see there?  In my case I have two because I've just been upgraded from Office 2003 to Office 2007. (Yeah some corporates are more backward than others. I'm still running WinXP at this gig.)

    OhhhhKayyyyy...now that makes sense.  You're using the Adobe online 30 day trial.  I did not pick that up in your earlier posts.  Yes that would explain the Word 2007 appearance.

    When I publish a Captivate 5.5 file to Word, it automatically publishes to Word 97-2003. However, I can save it as Word 2010, the only version installed on my computer, and it works just fine.
