"Launch" button problem when viewing a Published Storyline file

Aug 21, 2012

Hello, all  –

I occasionally publish my Storyline files as I am working on to look at them, since the Published version sometimes has slight differences from the Preview version.  

I installed Update 1 recently, and noticed that now when I Publish a file – the publish processing takes place.  However, if I click the “VIEW PROJECT” button I get a display of an orange “Launch” icon on an otherwise blank screen ... and when I click the “Launch” button – I get an "Error on page" message at the bottom of the display window and the project doesn’t display.  Note: I can still Preview files and they still look OK.    


I found that if I remove "launcher.html" from the end of the URL listing that is triggered when you click the VIEW PROJECT button, the published file is viewable (or you can click the “story.swf” file where you published the project, and it displays). My suspicion is that Launch button situation may be related to Update 1.

Has anyone else had this problem?  Is there a better way to work around it? Thanks!
