    Keep Main Menu open when open other project

    Evelita
      How do I keep the Main Menu.exe open when I open another project? I have a click box set to open a New window to launch the project and Continue playing project selected. When I close the 2nd .exe, it doesn't return to the Main Menu. Project preferences for both files are set to Stop Project at end.

          Hi Evelita

          First, a question. Is the Main Menu.exe a Captivate project or a Menubuilder project?? Reason I ask is because I publish most of my work in exe format and have picked up a problem in trying to have 2 or more Captivate exe files open at the same time, but it seems to be OK if you use a Menubuilder exe as the main menu to drive the other files.

          If the above does not work for you, then you might want to think about specifying the currently open file to open your Main Menu.exe when it closes. My suggestion would be to use a button on the last slide that would call up this project again. In a nutshell, the sequence would be open Menu, Link to File x (menu closes itself down), click on button on last slide of File x, File x closes and Menu opens.

          Luck and happiness

            The main menu is an .exe file, not a menubuilder file. Thanks for the suggestion.
