Resources do not refresh
Aug 31, 2012
I've recently had some problems with resources (files). In one case I published my project and one of the resources had been moved so when I went to test the published version I got a file not found error. That works as expected, however, I put the file in the correct directory and no matter how many times I republished, I could not get rid of the file not found message. I tried removing and readding the resource, removing it and renaming it and readding it, resaving the project, etc. I finally got it to work, but I'm not sure what did it.
Then in a similar situation, I had to update one of the resource files. It kept the same name, but the content was updated. Upon republishing the old content is still there. I got around this by changing the directory name (where I was keeping all the resources for this project), and going to the player and changing the location of each resource. A lot of work.
It seems that these are both related to being able to get storyline to refresh or reload the resources at publish time. Is there a way to force that?
