Good morning Cheryl,

When you run something "locally", you're running it off of your hard drive (usually the C: drive). When you do this, you can run into browser restrictions and other limitations that can cause problems when viewing your course.

It's always best to test your projects in the environment for which it's intended. So, if you plan on providing access to your course through a web server, LMS, CD, etc., that's where you'll want to test the files. 

Here's a little more information that may help:

If you view a published Presenter '09 presentation on your local hard drive or send it to someone else to view on their local hard drive, you'll encounter security restrictions from the computer, web browser, Flash Player, and network that'll cause various features of your content to fail.
To properly test your published content and share it with others, upload it to the environment for which it was published. Please review the following article for details:
I hope this helps :)
Have a great day!
Christine
