I'm using RH7 on a 32-bit Windows Vista PC. I have both .swfs created in Captivate and .swfs created in Flash embedded in a .CHM. Two months ago, both of these file types worked fine in the .CHM. Now only the Capt .swfs play in the .CHM. The Flash .swfs play when I preview from within RH and when played externally as .swfs, but not in the .CHM. I recently upgraded to Flash Player 10. Could that be the problem? The update deleted version 9 and Adobe doesn't have 9 available for download. Any other ideas? Thanks!
I have found the solution to this problem (for me). I had inadvertantly deleted all of the
.swfs that were called by the main .swf from the Baggage folder. They may have shown up on the Unused File List (?), which I use to clean up the project after a big round of revisions. Anyway, when I put them back in, all was fixed. Hooray!
I'm pleased you resolved the issue.
Here's a bit of technical information as to why that may have happened. If one SWF has a link inside it that opens or depends on another, RoboHelp has no way to determine that because it's all happening inside the SWF and not exposed to RoboHelp. Therefore RoboHelp *WILL* actually report the related SWFs as Unused Files. Because from RoboHelp's perspective, they are unused. They aren't directly referenced from any specific topic.
