The storyline is in SWF format

Jan 10, 2023

Hi there,
A few eLearning modules have been sent to me. Flash player is required to run the eLearning courses. After downloading the SWF files, I am unable to run them. In the days when Adobe Flash was available, I assume they were made in Adobe Flash.
They probably used Adobe Flash when it was available. All of them cannot be remade in Storyline. Storyline was unable to incorporate the SWF file.
Could this issue be approached differently? Do you have any ideas or suggestions?

Hi alvisn,

Thanks for reaching out! I see Lauren has replied to you in this similar post:

Since Flash is no longer supported, there isn't a way to open the courses unless you have the original source file. 

I'd recommend looking to see if your colleagues have the .story files backed up and you can republish them using HTML5 format.

Let me know if that helps or if you have other questions!
