I was publishing multiple Captivate HTML5 projects and when I uploaded them to our LMS (Cornerstone) each one crashed due to an ampersand in the metadata.xml file. I understand that the ampersand is an illegal character but I cannot locate or figure out where the VCARD info is being pulled from. I had our tech guy comb through everything he could on my PC but neither of us understand where the information is coming from. Here's the xml code:
In my SCORM files - the vcard information matches what I have entered in the project information.
Yes, I understand that but the "& Ethics Enforcement" isn't there on any module, only NC State Board of Elections. That's why I think that it's being pulled from somewhere else. In the test module that I created yesterday I left those spaces blank and it still appeared in the metadata file. I've been using Captivate since Captivate 4 and have never run into this before.
Does your institution use a corporate license - or is this a single licensed install?
I wonder if a larger Adobe account of some sort is pulling it in.
Have you - or are you able - to check the profile through which you are logged in to Captivate?
Yes, this is a corporate license. I have checked my profile and it's showing the correct organizational name. I agree with you that the application has to be pulling the information from somewhere else. I just wish we could find it. I'm wondering if it has something to do with how the original license (probably years old) was set up.
No company information here?
Unless someone else here has any ideas, I guess my next option would be to check with whoever handles your software licensing and touch base with Adobe to see if there is any lingering data.
Under the Public Profile there was nothing listed but it was showing at the bottom of that screen under Organization Name.
Could be the culprit then.
If you are not able to edit that directly or if someone with the proper credentials cannot - it may be worth that call in to Adobe.
It would be troublesome...
But in the short term - can you edit the xml file to take out the offending &?
Thanks and yes, I realized that the only way at that point was to edit the metadata files. Unfortunately there were almost 30 modules but that's what keeps us in business. 8-)
This is a long shot, but do you happen have a TOC in your courses? If so, do you have anything in the 'TOC Information' dialog that you can bring up with the 'Info...' button in the TOC tab of the Skin Editor?
That crossed my mind but we don't use the TOC and there's nothing in the info field. Thanks for your thought though.
