    Hi all,

    We have a client who would like to have standalone copies of content for reviewing while on the go (without internet) – the problem is they use a Mac often. The standard publish to standalone works well on Windows but being an EXE can’t run on anything else.

    We’re a bit stuck here and seem to be running out of options on this front. Is there any plan to support outputting a Mac-based standalone? Or preferably some existing way of getting this working that we’re not aware of!?

    So I might be overlooking something, and I don’t have a Mac to test on, but maybe publish to zip instead of exe? The user experience might be less than ideal, but extracting the zip and double-clicking index.html should launch the course.

    Like Stan said, you can have them view the content in a browser even if not online. You can go a step further to make it easier for the users and create a shortcut to the index file (or the titlemgr page if you’re using that). Just remember you will have issues if any of your content depends on external web sources (e.g. web links, Javascript libraries, etc.).

    If you need to collect info from the user (e.g. test score/completion status), and this isn’t being viewed as part of an LMS, then it will require more work since you would need to come up with a different results storage/submission method.

    Use Boot Camp and install Windows on the Mac. Done.

    Wine is also a nice option to run exe on Mac.
