The link that you provided does not provide option to create UML Diagram for existing C# project. How to achieve that?

Right click on project and there is view class diagram option....
To add a class diagram based on existing classes or types

    1. In Solution Explorer, select the file(s) that contain the items to display on the class diagram, Multi-selecting files is okay.

    2. Click the View Class Diagram button on the Solution Explorer toolbar.

    3. The class diagram opens in Class Designer and displays all classes and types in the selected files.

To add a class diagram based on an entire project

    1. In Solution Explorer, select the project name.

    2. Click the View Class Diagram button on the Solution Explorer toolbar.

    3. The class diagram opens in Class Designer and displays all classes and types in the project.

Class diagrams are the only ones provided with the Professional edition of Visual Studio that are used by most programmers as well as with the Premium edition.

In order to have other types of diagrams, you need to buy the Ultimate Edition.
