Incorrect file package message

Jan 11, 2021

Hi, I have published a lms file from Storyline 2 into zip file. When I attempt to upload onto Moodle platform as scorm 1.2 file I get the following error "Incorrect file package - missing imsmanifest.xml or AICC structure". Can someone provide some insight how to fix this?  Thank you

Hi Bertie,

That error message that the manifest can't be found when launching a course in your learning management system (LMS) is generally traced back to the SCORM output being zipped incorrectly. An LMS won't be able to find the imsmanfiest.xml file for a course if it's not at the root level of the zip file.

To correct it, do either of the following:

  • Use the built-in Zip feature on the Publish Successful dialog after you've published your Articulate content. It'll automatically create a well-formed zip file.
  • If you manually zip the output files, make sure only to zip the contents of the output folder, not the folder itself.

If you've double-checked that you've followed those steps, are you able to share your Storyline file here with us so that we can take a look?

Share your file with us.
