I have had exactly the same problem. I was using the pageTemplates file to create a learning module and any flash files that I imported were being treated as images and lost all interaction.
I did receive some helpful advice on this and tried this with a different swf that was provided and this appeared to function correctly!!
I would be very interested to hear if you are able to get this problem solved!

No, theose files should work, but it depends on how they were put together, and without a bit more info I can't really offer any more insight. Check the archives. Do you have the flash source code?

Subject: Importing Flash into Xerte

Hi Guys,

I have to migrate 180 hours of e-learning material from our proprietary VLE into Moodle and was hoping to use Xerte to display the media rich content. I've tried to import the current Flash content into Exerte but it doesn't animate and the ActionScript doesn't work. The content was created in Flash CS3 Professional using ActionScript 2 and I'm trying to import it into Xerte v2.5.9. I remember reading in the manual that Exerte was written using ActionScript 1. Is this the reason why the imported content doesn't display correctly? 


I've attached a zip file which includes the HTML, JavaScript, swf and fla files in the hope you can identify the problem.


Regards, Garry
