Do the files work if you open the HTML file in its originally published folder? There are security related reasons why a Test Movie in Animate will work, but opening the publsihed HTML file will not work. If it fails for you, it should fail for the same reason for the student.

When it does fail you can view the Developer tools in your browser, and see what error it is showing in Console.

You should be able to give us an example file that does fail, and from that we could suggest ways around the problem. Two ways that would work are: have a the student put the files online somewhere, in a way that they can send the URL to the HTML file. Or, you can run your own local web server, either via whatever your system can give you, or by using MAMP (it's a popular solution for these issues in the education world).

If you scroll further up the developer tools you should see a set of tabs that includes Console. That's the one to look at. You didn't include the image files in your zip file, so I can see what it should have looked like, but I do get several "Not allowed to load local resource" errors.

By original exported file, do you mean the folder where you exported the zip file, or do you mean back on the student's computer? If it's where the zip file expanded to, what happens if you expand the zip to the other folder location, instead of moving the already expanded files there?

I'm talking about my computer. the wierd thing is, is that it applies only on specific files.

some files i can just move the HTML with the Java and it will work, while others wont work as soon as i change the location - including ziping them in the same folder.

some of my student reported this problem while others didn't and uploded the files and they worked
