Exe file on another user's computer

Oct 15, 2014


I published my storyline as a CD and now I want to open it on another computer that doesn't have storyline installed, to view the product but it doesn't open correctly?

Can you help me?

Kind regards

Hi Valeska

when you publish the files and open the folder do you get the following on the CD?  If you click the Launch_Story that should run the story - this is in SL1...hope that helps

  • Open Folder: This opens a file viewer where you can see the files Storyline just created. There will be several folders and files, and the file that launches your course is called Launch_Story.exe. There’s also an autorun file, which causes your presentation to launch automatically if learners insert a CD or DVD containing your published output.

What do I do with my files once I've published?

Now that you've published, you can burn the files to a CD or DVD, or copy them to whatever local destination from which you plan to deploy your course.

  • Note: If you burn your course to a DVD, it must be played in a computer DVD drive. It will not function in a DVD player on a TV.
