Hyperlinks not working in Storyline 1 or 2

Greetings All!

I am having a issue with hyperlinks in my Articulate file. I published it and shared it with others in dropbox but the links will not open. The links work fine when trying to open on my computer the issue is with other computers. The links go to files such as Microsoft office and PDFs. Has anybody else bumped into this issue? If so can you please provide some insight. Thanks

You're running into the Flash Player Security restriction. When running locally, by default, the Flash player blocks any communication with the browser. To fix this, you can use any of these methods:

1) Find the Flash Player Security Settings Manager by searching Google and add the published output folder (on the user's machine that encounters the issue) to the whitelist.

2) Publish to CD and run the course using the EXE.

3) Run the file from a web server. Including a publicly shared dropbox link or other web host. The security feature doesn't block communication when run this way.

4) Run the HTML5 version.
