Launch Captivate using 'Run As Administrator'
If you don’t see a Captivate icon in your Start menu, you can just browse to the Captivate.exe file in your Program Files > Adobe > Adobe Captivate folder. You can just right click the application EXE file and set Run As Administrator there.
What if the IT Department won't allow you to use Run As Administrator?
Show hidden files and folders
Here’s how to show hidden files on a Windows operating system:
- Open Windows Explorer and click Tools > Folder Options.(If you do not see the Tools option in Windows Explorer, open the Organize dropdown menu and select Layout > Menu bar.)
- In the Folder Options dialog, click the View tab.
- Under Files and Folders > Hidden Files and Folders select the option to Show hidden files and folders.
- Click OK to save changes.
Why you need to know on which web server your content is hosted
Always use lower case file/folder names
Never use spaces in file/folder names
Similar to the previous rule, spaces between words in folder names or filenames may result in broken URL links after uploading to a web server or LMS. Though your Windows operating system or LAN server will be able to resolve hyperlinks containing spaces, the rules of the internet are somewhat different. Web servers and web browsers do not expect to find spaces in a URL. They’ll interpret the spaces to mean the end of the URL, and therefore your carefully crafted hyperlinks will break.
The recommended way to separate words in a folder or file name is to use an underscore character or a hyphen. So instead of creating links like my course/my first course module.htm which would break, you should replace the spaces with underscore characters so that the link target is my_course/my_first_module.htm or even use hyphens such as in my-course/my-first-module.htm.
