I've been using Captivate 2 to create a number of marketing
presentations, and I'm encountering a very irritating issue. While the
published file plays fine in the folder it's initially saved to, any
attempt to move it (to another folder, or onto external devices) renders
it unplayable.

I'm not leaving any of the necessary files behind, and dragging the
*skin.swf file into the browser fixes the problem. But I can't see any
reason why it wouldn't have been loaded in the first place.

Do the towering intellects of techwr-l have any fixes?
