Introduction

This TechNote describes how to code a map (AAM) file to create a web-packaged file that uses the Flash Asset Xtra to display Shockwave Flash files (SWF) in Authorware.

Note: The information contained in this TechNote is correct for historical versions of the Authorware Web Player, but not necessarily correct for Authorware Web Player, version 2004, released in June 2004. All users are encouraged to upgrade their web player.

The lines that you edit in your map (AAM) file depend on how you imported the Shockwave Flash(SWF) file into Authorware. The following map files (AAM) are examples based on the Shockwave Flash (SWF) import method.

Note: If you are using a UNIX server, you need to follow UNIX naming conventions. See Naming conventions on Unix servers (TechNote 13421) for more information.

  • For Shockwave Flash files (.swf) embeded into Authorware

    There is no need to edit the map file since the Xtras are included in the Authorware Web player.
  • For Shockwave Flash files (.swf) externally linked to Authorware.
