What program did MS use to draw http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/techinfo/reskit/deploymentscenarios/lab-dns-view.asp
I want to be able to draw diagrams with these icons, and lay them out isometrically, and for the life of me I can't find the program that does it.
I have visio, and it's not that, nor Lanflow or Smart draw.
500 points for the person who can end my year long search!

When I right click I get an option for Macromedia Flash player, so maybe Macromedia has other program for creating  similar content.

I hope this helps !

Thanks guys.  No, it's not Macromedia, that's only being used as a viewer.

It may be visio with custom icons, however I have not seen Visio present a diagram that well.  I'll be convinced when I see the icons.

Come on guys... 500 points on this one.  I have found out that the diagram was created using Visio 2002 on my own.

The Isometric view is achieved by using a shape set and keying in the isometric angles required.

Now what I need is to get hold of the icons to complete the drawing.  They are not a part of Visio.

Visio has a set of updated Network Icons on a separate CD. If you are a registered user, MS usually sends them out or you should be able to download them from the MS site.

I hope this helps !
