Bonus question - html5 publishing was introduced in Captivate 6 so content from those versions would not be in html5 output.
You will need native .cp and .cptx files to carry out a conversion.
Your conversion process would be .cp version 4 to a .cptx format - you might want to try version 6 ( as I remember I think it can suck in .cp files)
I recently brought version 5, 5.5 ,6 files forward to version 9 and then more recently those files into html5 - 2017 - had to do a clean up using the tracker but the client is happy
On recent Captivate versions, there's a System Variable 'CaptivateVersion'. So if you ran the course in Chrome, brought up the developer Tools and ran alert(CaptivateVersion); from in the Console, it whould give you the version number in an alert box.
Catch is, I don't know when this variable was introduced. Might not yet have been around in Versions 4 or 5.
Most system variables were introduced with 5.5 or 6. Not sure about 5, certainly not with 4.
An easy way to see if there is any HTML-published content in those packages is to look for 'index.html'. If for Flash, the HTML launch file is named the same as the project (i.e. 'my-project.html'). Developers can rename it, of course, and update the manifest, but I doubt many do. Plus then there are all the HTML support folders/files too...
But as others said, if it was done with versions prior to 6, there's certainly not going to be HTML-published content.
Since you have access to the SCORM packaged files...and if Adobe followed the general SCORM packaging guidelines, you should (might) be able to locate the version of Captivate used by looking in the metadata.xml file which is part of the SCORM packaged set of files.
In the metadata.xml file will be a series of <vcard> xml blocks...enclosed <contribute>..one of them should provide data related to Publisher or the like that was used to record the software tool used to publish the SCORM package.
Just open the metadata.xml file in your preferred code/HTML/XML editor and do a search for Captivate or even Adobe Captivate...
I extracted an example of what I'm talking about:
NOTE: version 188.8.131.527
You know ultimately it doesn't matter. The .swf files are compiled - so you will need the original .cp converted to .cptx and .cptx files to be able to republish the content into html5.

Unzip the scorm package, locate the project.txt or project.json file and view it in a text editor. First line will show the Captivate version used to publish.
