Hi Janise and welcome to the community
Um, what exactly is Windows 2003? Are you perhaps talking about Windows 2003 server or are you talking about the Vista beta? Either way, I suppose you are beyond the realm of officially supported operating systems. Captivate only works with Windows 2000 and Windows XP.

One thing you might be able to do is to grab screen captures from the unsupported OS and manually build your demonstration this way. You simply create a blank movie, then add slides as needed. Insert screen captures where needed, then turn on the mouse movements and set the stop points.
Sorry. Windows 2003 Server Edition.
So, might it be possible to run the software on my XP system, open a remote desktop on the other computer, and use Captivate in its usual fashion. I will need to do a "movie", voice overs, and add some power point slides.
Thanks for the help.
Hi again Janise
Yes, as long as you can display what you need on the XP desktop, you should be good to go.
Keep in mind that your best result will likely be obtained by creating the voiceover as a separate process and not while you are recording the initial movie.
Also, you may discover that the remote destop won't paint quite fast enough so Captivate will record "blank screens" here and there. Where you notice this happening, press the Print Screen key to force additional screen captures. It's always easier to delete unwanted slides than it is to re-create them when needed.
Thanks for the help. It appears that I can use remote desktop for this.
