 How to rename V12-DBE Xtra for web-packaged pieces
V12-DBE for AuthorwareWindows & MacintoshWeb-packagingall


When creating web-packaged pieces, the V12-DBE must be auto-downloaded from a server to the user's computer. The names of the Xtra files, "V12-DBE FOR AUTHORWARE.XTR" on Mac and "V12-DBE FOR AUTHORWARE.x32" on Windows contain spaces, which are not permitted by the Authorware web packager. In addition, the file names are too long to be downloaded on Mac.

To resolve this naming issue follow these steps:

  1. First click File > Publish to create the web package

  2. Click File > Publish > Web Packager... to edit the .aam file. Once the Web packager window is open click Cancel if the browse window opens. Click File > Open Map... and locate the .aam file created by the Publish command.

  3. If there is a line containing the V12-DBE For Authorware Xtra, double-click that line.

  4. Change the name of the Xtra in the Server text box, to something short, with no spaces, such as V12-DBE.x32 (windows) V12-DBE.bin (mac). You don't have to change the name of the local file.

  5. If there is no line containing the Xtra, click Insert to insert a line of type bin for Windows (and for Mac if needed). For the Mac file, make sure to check the MacBinary box. See the example below.
    Note: the Mac Xtra should be stored on the server compressed as mac binary (normally it ends with a .bin extension).

  6. Close the map file.

  7. Make sure to name the Xtras on the server with the same shortened names you used in the map file.


Here is example map file with the Xtras for Windows and Mac.
