Problem extracting Articulate 360

Jul 08, 2018

Hi everyone,

I'm on the trial version of the software and I hit the wall right after downloading Storyline360. I manage to download the .exe file, but trying to extract it, I get the message "The contents of the file articulate-360.exe can not be extracted with this program". I'm working in a Mac environment and I use the Unarchiver.

Do you have any idea how to solve this problem?

Hi there, Melinda.  Thanks for those helpful details.  The Articulate 360 desktop app needs to be installed in a Windows operating system.  Here's some more information on using Articulate desktop tools with a Mac.

Good news:  Rise, Articulate Review and Peek can all be run natively on a Mac operating system, so feel free to try them out in the meantime.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Hi, Kathy, and welcome to E-Learning Heroes! ✨

While there's no native Mac version of the Articulate 360 desktop app, you can run it using a virtual environment, such as Parallels or VMWare Fusion, or through Apple Boot Camp if your Mac is Intel-based.

Here are some articles to get you started:
