Storyline files won't work after zipping

Aug 27, 2014

Recently I've used 7Zip to compress my output files to send to our LMS vendor. The files seem to be corrupted during the process. When I open the zipped file and try to play the course I get an error message "ERROR: Could not load the file 'story_content/data.swf." Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi James and welcome to E-Learning Heroes!

Two options:

  • 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 to only zip the contents of the output folder, not the folder itself.
