Web Link Issues

Mar 20, 2014

Hello Everyone,

  I am having an issue with embedded links once published to CD. I have buttons with triggers that link to the web. The triggers work well when I test them but after "publishing to CD" for off-line viewing before publishing to LMS, the buttons do not work.

  Any suggestions?

Hi Brian,

Are you using Windows Vista or later? You may be encountering enhanced security in these operating systems, which can prevent attachments from opening when published for CD. To avoid this enhanced security, do either of the following:

  • Right-click the Launch file, and select Run as administrator.
  • Or, turn off User Account Control (UAC). Here's how: Windows 8Windows 7Windows Vista

If you'll eventually be publishing for your LMS, you'll want to test in that environment to see how everything behaves and if you're not ready to load to your LMS you can use a site like SCORM Cloud which is a free industry standard testing method for SCORM content.
