What version of Flash Player do you have installed? If you have 220.127.116.11, that could be the problem. I was running Flash Player 9 and having problems publishing Captivate content embedded into Breeze 5. They wouldn't play at all after publishing to Breeze 5. Like you, this problem didn't occure initially during development.
I uninstalled Flash PLayer 9, installed the older version 8 and then I could publish Captivate content embedded in the Breeze files.
This combination worked for us:
Breeze Presenter 5.1.269
Powerpoint version 2002 and 2003
Flash Player 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124
If I switched back to Flash Player 9, the Captivate content stopped working again.
Well, Supermarket Cat, you have saved the day! This totally worked! Thank You!
It took some searching, but i found the flash uninstaller, then luckily we had a copy of Flash Player 8.0.22 still laying around here (because I couldn't find one on the Adobe site). Presto!
Thank you again!
I'm glad that worked for you. I know I was pulling my hair out while we went through the same problem.
Sorry I didn't have the links handy at the time of my first post. For the record, here are some that will be helpful with rolling back to an old version of the Flash Player...
Determine current version of Flash Player:
Uninstall current version of Flash Player:
Download and install previous version(s) of Flash Player:
Has anyone found anything else that causes this problem? Does the Flash player really affect the authoring output?
I actually have Flash player 8,0,2,2 installed and when I publish a Breeze presentation, the embedded Captivate still does not play.
I have tested it: with/without Captivate playbar, with/without preloader, checking/unchecking control by Presenter, publishing locally, publishing to Breeze server, etc and have the same results each time. It's almost as if the Captivate swf has been converted to a 1 frame swf -- when I look at the output files, I don't see a larger swf file corresponding to the slide which has the embedded Captivate swf (the original Captivate swf was around 500k).
I'd appreciate any ideas you might have.
Here's my current setup which although not ideal seems to meet all system requirements:
Win 2000 SP 4 : PowerPoint 2000 Sp3: Breeze Presenter 5.1.248 : Captivate 1.0..1418 Build 1418 (full version)
