Hi. We’re using 19.0.3 and we’re uploading to Cornerstone. Before we published and zipped the course, we went through and removed all of the Flash files from within the course. There were only a few and they were not being used, so everything worked fine without them.
However, our LMS is detecting a Flash file that we can’t find. I hear that Flash is embedded somewhere in the Lectora code. We need to find that and remove it. Any hints?
In fact i do consider it good practice that before publishing you remove all not used content in a title. Due to copying and pasting from old files and templates often tons of unused files remain from previous iterations of a title.
So do make a habit of deleting unused files from your title before publishing.
Does the LMS tell you the name of the file it is detecting? Is it a SWF? I assume you have unzipped the packaged (SCORM?) course and just done a search (using Windows file explorer if nothing else) for all files ending in “.swf”? SCORM and AICC formats are pretty robust–you can just unzip it, make a change, and make a new zip file.
It is probably unlikely, but with the Success Factors LMS, uploading a new version of a zip archive never actually replaces the old one. The old one is still present, even after uploading the new. Weird, but true.
Since it should be very low-cost, you could try uploading to a new course ID (or whatever Cornerstone calls it) instead of replacing the old?
