  12. 12. 05 Common Issues1. When we extract the SCORM package the imsmanifest.xml should be in the Root Folder. This is must.2. Still getting Error - Then open the manifest in IE and check till end of Manifest and ensure that there are no errors. If Error shown thencheck the line num and go to manifest look for what is issuePossible reasons are:1) Any Special Characters /2) We cant have &, >, <, ! as it is they should be treated with & - &amp; and etc3. Still getting Error? - Then look this line in manfest under Resources Tag and check the pasth for index.html (Starting File for thecourse)For Ex: <resource identifier="SCO0" type="webcontent" adlcp:scormtype="sco" href="resize.html">4. Still Getting Error - Check the imsmedata.xml is placed and path is given properly5. Must and should we zip the files from insider folder where manifest lies:1) Select all the files2) Right Click - > Zip6. OPTIONAL TAGS - We can Delete the lines which start as below in the Resources Tag. Remove till </resource>For Ex: <file href="AC_RunActiveContent.js" />1) Ensure there is no space between filenames for XML, if there pls remove and make changes in manifest accordingly2) In content they put PDFs docs...etc... and for them also no spaces and & - or special chars..... so better is always to remove the extraunwanted resource tags ...except keeping the starting file tag...
