Can someone please let me know from where can I download the trial version of MS Visio 2010?

On the Microsoft site, I can only find trial version of Vision 2013

Yes. All download links for Visio 2010 have only Visio 2013 now.

Is it for personal or for your company ?

If it is for personal its not possible as Microsoft always strict with their new product for personal users. it can be download from third parties I believe but I can't provide you those links here and I'm not suppose to do as per EE policy.

For Business, It can be done through MSDN Subscription, but your company should be a Microsoft partner

It is for my company. I am expected to get a license from my company but due to the required approvals it could take upto a month, and I need Visio in the next couple of days.

So I was suggested that I use the trial version till then and when the license is made available, I can provide the license key.

Now the MS Office software that I have on my laptop is MS Office 2010, so I wanted to install Visio 2010 as well (the license key will also be provided for Visio 2010).

So my question is, if I were to install Visio 2013 trial version and create some drawing using it. After a month when the key becomes available, the IT will install Visio 2010 (and uninstall 2013). Will I still be able to use my drawings which were created in 2013 or can I expect some compatibility issues.

The easy solution is to download, install, and use the Visio 2013 trial version. Save your files as an earlier version.  This way, when you get the official Visio 2010, you shall have no problems.

Its pretty unfair that Microsoft removes downloads for previous versions. All it does it make people angry and frustrate their userbase, and their advocates who administer networks. They really need to stop acting like this.
