Output to CD

I need to output my Presenter project to CD. I need the project to begin/launch when the CD is inserted. I can't seem to get this to work. When I publish to CD, I simply get a folder of files. I transfer/burn the folder to the CD. When I eject and reinsert the CD, nothing happens. What am I doing wrong? I need the project to autorun when the CD is inserted.

Help! I have about 30 minutes to make this work! I'm using Presenter '09.

Welcome to Heroes, Katie!

If you publish an Articulate Presenter '09 presentation and find that the expected output is incomplete (one or more files or folders are missing) or if the “View Presentation” button on the Publish Successful dialog does not work, please review the following article for solutions:


Please let me know if that resolves the issue. Good luck!

Hi Katie,

When specifically are you receiving that error message? It would be really helpful if you could provide screenshots or even a screencast of what you are doing when you receive the message. 

You can create a screencast here and share the link with us and I think that will really help us isolate the problem for you:

When I go to publish my presentation, the normal option screen shows up for how I'd like to publish my CBT.  I click on the CD tab and find the D: drive in the 'Publish Location'.  When I click 'Publish' an error message pops up  that says "Specified folder does not exist. Please specify a valid output folder."  So that error message comes up right after hitting the 'Publish' button.
