Applying old Engage and Quiz templates on upgraded OS 7??

I went from one computer with Windows XP to Windows 7.0 on another computer.

I am slowly locating my old Engage and Quizmaker templates and color schemes on my old XP laptop to transfer to my new Windows 7 laptop. But in some instances, I'm not sure where to put them and have my Engage and Quiz Interactions able to then locate them when I'm working on a presentation.

Found some old forums that talk about locations for files, but so far it's not all linking up.

The most Immediate one I'm working on is my Engage Color scheme that I put in a the folder I showed below on the 7.0 computer, but it's not being recognized when I open an interaction.

C:\Users\RMaclachlan\AppData\Roaming\Articulate\Engage\2.0\schemes

Help Please.

Thanks.

Hi Rebecca,

You'll see within this tutorial on creating custom colors, etc. in Engage (the same will be true for Quizmaker) that you should save it accordingly: 

When you save a custom color scheme, Engage adds it to the options in the Color scheme selector for any other interactions you build. The color scheme file gets stored in the following directory, depending on your version of Windows:

  • Windows Vista or later
    C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Articulate\Shared\3.0\Frames\StoryFrame\ColorSchemes
  • Windows XP
    C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application Data\Articulate\Shared\3.0\Frames\StoryFrame\ColorSchemes

On my new OS 7 computer I don't seem to have the exact same folders. I have up till

C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Articulate\Shared

Then I have a a folder: "1.0"

then a folder: "frames"

It ends there.

I am assuming I can place all my color schemes and templates here?:

C:\Users\RMaclachlan\AppData\Roaming\Articulate\Templates\Themes

Thanks for your help on this!
