I am using a Sharepoint site as the spot for the users to access the demos/training. What all do I need to upload to this site so that the files work properly when they click on them?
I loaded the .htm file you suggested then clicked on it and nothing happens. The screen just goes blank.
I am creating everything on my computer then loading on the site. Must I load everything from the folder created when I publish to the site?
Captivate output is a bit like a house of cards. I'm not sure we know which version you are using so I'll use Captivate 3 to illustrate.
With Captivate 3 you normally end up with multiple files if you are Publishing to SWF format. I'll assume you named the project MainMovie. In this case, you may end up with the following files in the folder.
You may also see a couple of other files.
The two files above would be created if you had the option for publishing Adobe Acrobat Connect Pro Metadata enabled.
You may also see some full motion files and possibly other SWF files if you used a few animations.
Essentially, you want to take ALL the output files and place them on your server. You then point at the HTM file.
HTM file loads and seeks the standard.js file. If it's not there, things just stop dead in their tracks. Assuming the standard.js is found, the MainMovie_skin.SWF loads up. The skin file then loads the MainMovie.SWF file. As the movie plays, any other SWF files are loaded when they are needed.
Hopefully that helps better explain it.
Thank you for your help.
I'm using Captivate 3 and when I open the .HTM file for my project, the file opens blank. The Captivate skin appears, but my eLearning module does not open. The folder for the project contains all of the files you listed in your post. I have the standard.js, the htm file, the swf file, swf skin file and three full motion files.
While trying to troubleshoot my problem, I discovered that if I separated out the lessons of my eLearning into individual Captivate files and published the .HTM they opened and ran with no problems. This is not a viable solution, since I need all of the lessons combined into one file. For some reason when the lessons are combined into one file, the published HTM file will not display. Any idea why this could be happening?
Welcome to our community, Heather
Based on what you have told me in your post I can't see any obvious issue. However, it isn't working for you and that certainly means something is amiss.
Where are you testing from? Local disk, network drive, web server?
Are you clicking the View Output button to test or are you locating the file and double clicking it?
I've published and tested the file from a local drive and network drive. Both locations have the same issue when launching the file. I have accessed the file by clicking the View Output button and by double clicking the actual htm file. Again, both means of opening the file have resulted in the same issue. Any other ideas?
Thanks for your help
