I have created an application using Visual Studio Professional 2015 (Version 14.0.25431.01 Update 3) that utilizes Visio Viewer (Version 16.0.4339.1001).
When I install my application, I get "Error 1904. Module C:\Program Files (x86)\...\VVIEWER.DLL failed to register. HRESULT -2147220473. Contact your support personnel."
I have researched and not found a solution. I have done all the basics .. windows is up to date, etc.
In my application I reference AxVisioViewer.
The application does run / work correctly - but I am concerned that the end users will not have a good install experience as they see this error during install.
(I also get the similar error when uninstalling - the failed to deregister error 1905).

Visio Viewer must be installed first. In Visual Studio, AxVisioViewer copy local set to yes (it will not work if set to no). Embed Interop Types - False. Specific version - False.
I have tried uninstalling Visio Viewer and installing my app, it will not run without Visio Viewer installed. I have re-installed visio viewer then re-installed my app - same error during installation. As stated, it works - but the user sees this error.
I am using InstallShield LE, and I am digitally signing my app / setup programs

Hello,

I saw a similar questions earlier regarding this subject, but I am still unable to get my excel data imported completely into a org. chart in Visio 2016. I have all of the correct columns and I have only one individual that does not have a "reports to" column, but it will continuously state that I have 80 plus employees with no match. I have tried using the wizard and without the wizard. I have everyone matched up in my excel in the "name" and "reports to" columns. I've been watching tutorials, but can't get past this step. Thank you for any tips!

Hello

I would like to draw a Visio of a platform that I run.

But - more importantly - if someone clicks a server, what I'd like to be able to do is bring up details such as server name, data center and so forth. Is this possible?

I have Visio installed on a server (Windows 2016) where it runs as expected locally. However when I try to run it from a computer on the network through a mapped drive, it crashes before it opens. I have verified that all of the shares along the way are good. I can navigate to the target .exe file without any prompts or errors, but when trying to launch, that's when it crashes.

My path is this \\servernamehere\C$\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15\VISIO.exe

I have tried it with a user name in the place of C$ and the result is the same. What am I doing wrong?

Is it possible in Visio to link blocks of data in Visio so that if I fill a field of information in one page it is automatically filled in another page located on a different tab in the workbook? This would be similar to what you can do in excel. Right now I am typing in the information on my main page and then duplicating the exact same information on two other pages. This is not very efficient.

Hello
Microsoft VISIO is a great tool for engineering students. I have used VISIO 2010 for creating all kinds of diagrams and figures and exported them to pdf for LaTEX documents. However, after upgrading to VISIO 2016, the pdf's are now framed. How can I remove those frames ?

Lots of discussions shape data, but I can't seem to find this simple case.

1. I have four rectangles in my drawing. Each rectangle represents a desk. These are the only shapes in the drawing.

2. I have imported an excel spreadsheet using the Custom Import tool (using all the default settings). My spreadsheet has two columns and 5 rows. The Desk_Name column will be the unique identifier.
Desk_Name | Employee_Name
Desk1              | Alice
Desk2               |Bob
Desk3             | Charlie
Desk4             | Alice

3. I want the text field of rectangle 1 to display Alice, rectangle 2 to display Bob, etc. Desk4 is occupied by fourth employee also named Alice. I don't want the Desk_Name displayed. I don't want any text to appear off to the side of the shape, like I see in most of the examples. The only text that should appear inside the rectangle is the employee name.

4. The text inside the rectangles should be updated if I change any of the employee names. I don't expect this to happen automatically; I'll have to hit a refresh button somewhere.

5. *Eventually* the drawing will have up to 144 desks, and of course I will increase the size of the spreadsheet to match.

As I said, total noob with shape data. I know I have to assign a unique identifier (DeskName?) to each rectangle, and I have to link the text field of that shape to a specific excel cell, but I don't know how to start. To me this seems a simple case, but all the examples I've seen are for…

Hi,

I have created a custom stencil in Visio to capture specific data for a process flow that I can export to Excel. Now that I have mapped out the process, I have started to manipulate the data in Excel. The process, however, has several flows and I need to determine which steps follow each other and are part of the same flow. In Visio this is easy because you can visually see the process, but in Excel everything is listed as a row and it's unclear.

Is there a way to add shape data that will determine the sequencing of the shapes once they are in exported in Excel? Perhaps using the Dynamic Connectors to link the shapes to each other?

Thanks,

Sean

Hi,

I am working on a project that has an excel data base imported and has almost 7000 rows and 5 columns. Each rows has a unique combination and each cell on the row will depict a block in visio. Now I would like to know if it is possible to create a diagram for each and every row separately which will have the 5 blocks? And is it possible to automatically connect those 5 blocks to each other based on the text in the block?

For example

One block will have the name FLAP AC this has to connect to a block named "AC" likewise.

Any leads will be appreciated. VBA Code or any method using Visio.

I can't get the Excel export to work with a Shape Report when I choose "Shapes on all pages".  It comes back with an error box that has no text and the Excel sheet is never created.  I'm using Vision Professional 2010.

Hello,

    I have an Excel sheet I have inserted on a Visio Page which I would like to use to link to a few text boxes rather than copy the data and manually copy paste to the text boxes.  Does anyone have any suggestions on how to link a specific Excel Cell to Visio Text boxes, possibly using the custom formula in the function feature?

WBS modeler not functioning - Cannot add child elements, nor do most options seem available. Followed this guide, results below:
https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/chhopkin/2009/02/23/the-wbs-menu-is-not-available-after-installing-wbs-modeler-add-in-for-visio/

Running Windows 10 64 bit, Visio Pro 2010 32 bit.
1) Installed WBS 32 bit Modeler, install went well, but the template does not work correctly.
2) In developer mode, confirmed that the add-in is not listed/available in the COM options (not present)
3) Added the .NET Programmability Support, no change
4) No other add-ins present, un/reinstalled Visio and modeler, no change
5) Tried installing the MS 2010 PIA, but it does not appear to execute, just loads partially (image attached), then appears to fail (window disappears).

I'm out of ideas... Anyone know why the PIA isn't installing, or another work around to get WBS Modeler functioning?

Screen Capture of PIA install fail

Hello experts,

For years when Visio was used there was over on the left under the Clipboard group a Shapes dialogue box that allowed one to open groups of Shapes and search for Shapes.

Now no longer is the Shapes box not there it cannot be found anywhere in the application. The only thing that I can think of that I did to change the application was open a dialogue called Drawing Explorer.

How do I get the Shapes and Stencils dialogue box back?

Thanks.

When working with Microsoft Visio, if you click on an image/object then press  Ctrl C  to copy it then press Ctrl V to paste it, it has a tendency of pasting the copied image towards the bottom right corner of the original copied image - This is Annoying!

1) Is there a way to change the direction of the copied image/object in relation to the original image/object?
2) if so, how do I get it to paste right next to the original image/object?
