Project 2007 Visual Reports Error

Good morning all,

I have 20 tablet machines running Windows XP SP3 with Office 2007 including Visio 2007 and Project 2007.  In Project under Reports-> Visual Reports my "All" tab only shows Excel reports(even with both Excel and Visio boxes checked).  When I click "New Template", Visio, any combination of other options, and OK I get this error message: This operation requires that you have Visio Professional 2007 or later installed on your computer.  The problem is, I do have Visio 2007 ver 12.0.6423.1000 SP2 MSO 12.0.6521.5000.  The only thing I doubt is the fact I don't see "Professional" anywhere.  

Is there anything I can do to fix this?

Visio Professional 2007 should have several templates/diagrams that standard does not. Open Visio and there should be a bar on the left with template categories. Go to the Network folder and see if you have a template for a Network Rack.  If you do, that should mean you are on professional.

If you are on Professional but still getting this message then it could be an installation problem.  Report back on above and I will keep looking for other known issues.
You can also do a more definitive check by looking in your registry.
START - RUN - regedit then drill down to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE  /  Software /  Microsoft  /Office  /  12.0  /  Visio  / Edition
The value will be Pro. if it is Professional

Looks like I only have standard.  Thanks for your help!  Seems that was a little easier than I imagined.
