emailing zipped storyline

Feb 07, 2013

Hi Everybody,

I am tying to email a zipped, published storyline project to a friend but no matter what I do in regards to accounts I send it to or from it keeps being blocked. This seems to be because it has an exe in it, which will happen for all published storyline projects.

Can anyone tell me how they are getting around this? I've thought of a dropbox, but emailing is easier.

Hi James,

Can you perhaps grab some screenshots of what is happening? The process works the same as it always has, at least with Win7. And I'm seeing the extension name change in the properties dialog box also (I replaced .zip with .abc).

Perhaps if you could display some screen shots the community could help out.

Hi James,

Tx for replying ... wouldn't have realized hiding the extensions would cause that to happen. It's been years since I've had anything hidden.

When I used to teach F-2-F Windows classes and get into these options, my mantra was always "show all, hide nothing." This was of course for individual users, not for a networked environment where IT needs to "contain" things.

Good morning,

As of now I have the free trial for your Storyline product and so far it is great! The only problem I have is that I have not been able to email the presentation I have created. When I try to email it a pop up comes up saying "either there is no default mail client or the current mail client cannot fulfill the messaging request. Please install or configure your mail client as the default mail client."

I am not trying to share this with a client just with a peer. Please let me know what steps I need to take in order to be able to email my presentation.
