Inserting Flash Quiz

I have a survey (un-graded quiz) animation that I need to insert into a Captivate 5.5 slide. I tried inserting as animation but file did not play. The animation includes a ball that advances towards the goal as user answers each question correctly. Do I need to insert as a widget?

    Unless you coded this as a widget, DO NOT insert as a widget.

    How was the animation created? 


    Did you create a survey quiz in Captivate and then publish it as a SWF to insert?  Or did you create this interaction in Flash and publish it as a SWF?  Was it set to play automatically?


    Since Captivate 5.5 only supports AS3 and not AS2, did you make sure your SWF was published as AS3?

    If you just inserted the SWF into Captivate, even if you copied the XML into the same publish folder, the SWF will probably not be able to find the XML.  You need to play around with the code in your Flash file to change the path to the XML so that it will work once the SWF is embedded.  Alternatively, you can try externalising the SWF in Preferences > Project > Publish Settings and see if that works.  But it still might require changes in the AS code.
