I recently installed Visio 2013 and every time I start it up, I get the progress bar/message box saying "Please wait while ..."
(See graphic).  This does not seem right.  EVERY time I run it the program goes through this sequence!

To manually fix this issue, run 'regedit' and manually change the value of [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.vsd] to Visio.Drawing.11 (if using the Visio client) or VisioViewer.Viewer (if using the Visio Viewer).

The steps listed in the support KB did not work.  I even did a repair.

How was Visio 2012 installed?

Are there any Group Policy settings that are configured to deliver Office 2013 components via network?

Are there any multi-language pack setups happening on the network and also delivered via GP?

We tend to see this behaviour, and have since 2007, on centrally deployed Office installs where the "what is installed on your machine" poll when the routine fires up and the "this is installed on my machine" answer are not the same for language packs.

Could be a corrupt profile or bad pemissions on it.

The Help desk blew away my user profile and created another one.  The program installed properly and it's working now.  The tech did not elaborate on what "blow away your profile" meant.  But perhaps a bunch of bad registry keys were deleted and built from scratch?.

So, as you stated, it was a bad profile.  Interesting how my answer never factored into this.
