HTML5 Output Compatibility with Google Chrome 44 for Studio '13

Jul 24, 2015

On July 22, 2015, Google released Chrome 44 for Windows, Mac, and Linux. This unfortunately introduced an issue with the HTML5 output of Articulate Storyline 1, Storyline 2, and Studio ’13. While the large majority of courses utilize the Flash output when running in Chrome, we recognize that the HTML5 option is critical and have updated our software to rectify the issue. Please download and install this free update to your software as soon as possible so that the HTML5 output for all the courses you create going forward functions properly in Google Chrome.

Here's the link to download the updated version:

Please note, if you have the “Check for updates” option enabled in your Articulate software, it will automatically notify you that the new version is available.

Please use the update utility for existing courses that require HTML5 output for Chrome. The utility will automatically update your courses so you won’t have to republish each course individually. For step-by-step instructions, please view the appropriate Chrome 44 Updater support article (Presenter ‘13, Quizmaker ‘13, Engage ‘13).


We apologize for any inconvenience you experienced, and please let us know if you have any additional questions.

Hi Alta & Joe. The Articulate Updater for Chrome is now ready. It scans and updates your published courses so HTML5 output will work in Google Chrome 44 and later. (For new courses, install the latest update for your authoring app.) 

You can read the directions here on how to use the updater for Presenter, updater for Quizmaker, and updater for Engage.

OK. Downloaded the Update and ran it as Administrator. I receive the screen giving me the option to either Add/Remove Studio Programs, Reinstall, or Remove All. I tried using the first two options. They ran but did not update the apps (still says version 5 for both Presenter and Engage). So, which option should I use? Do I Remove All and then run the Studio-13.exe to put the newer version on? I have the licensed version of Articulate Suite 13.

I did a complete remove and then re-installed from the Update 6 download.

However, when I look at the "About" screen for Presenter, QuizMaker or Engage, it is still only showing Update 5 (1412.920). Is that normal?
