What published file should I link to.

I have published multiple Storyline files out for use on CD. 

My project involves creating a PDF menu that links to the multiple training files.  When linking to the "story.html" file, it works well on a PC that utilizes a web browser, such as IE or Foxfire - however, it does not work well on a Microsoft Surface that utilizes a VLC Media Player. 

The VLC Media Player, on the Microsoft Surface, seems to like the "Launch_Story.exe" file, however the PC with IE does not like that file.

What file should link to, from my menu, that will work in both cases?  Any Ideas?

Hi Beth,

I'm not sure about the PDF menu that you've set up - as that sounds like a more custom set up, so I'd have to defer to the community on that. I did want to share that the Launch_story.exe file is the one that launch your course, so I would expect it to work on a PC when you've published for CD and it'll launch any files in a version of Internet explorer as detailed here.
