Exporting Flash Files

If there is a common thread running through this book, it is the intimate relationship between Captivate and Flash MX 2004 or Flash MX Professional 2004. This isn't due to Macromedia acquiring the Captivate technology and looking to repurpose it. It is simply this: The Flash Player is one of the most ubiquitous pieces of software in the computing field.

In 2003, Macromedia released Flash Player 7, and as of the writing of this book, only eight months later, Macromedia claims that it is installed on roughly 60 percent of all computers worldwide. According to Kevin Lynch, executive vice president and chief software architect at Macromedia, that number is expected to be close to 85 percent by the time you are reading this book. Flash Player 6, which Captivate uses, is installed on just under 95 percent of all computers worldwide. It makes sense, therefore, to utilize a technology with such massive penetration into the market.
