Some SCORM opens with SLK, some with PKZip

May 30, 2007 at 2:18 PM
I've got some SCORM content (like Solitaire) that opens in SLK, but other SCORM content opens with PKZip.
Is there a known format idiosyncrasy that would cause this?

Likely because the content does not have an imsmanifest.xml in the root of the zip file. SLK thinks it is just a zip file you are running/downloading rather than a SCORM package. This sometimes happens when you zip the whole directory of an expanded package rather than the contents of the directory. When you unzip the zip, it should have an imsmanifest.xml at the root, not another folder you have to open to get to the manifest file.

But the package does have an IMSManifest.xml

Is there a sepcific format to the manifest that SLK looks for? A key entry that if missing, will cause this problem?

The ValidatePackage tool in the SLK distribution gives detailed information about why a package is not being considered as SCORM, I believe.
