Visio Viewer 2003 shows blank pages in Internet Explorer 6

Postby Amedee Van Gasse » Thu, 31 May 2007 16:20:17 GMT

Hello,

When opening a Visio .vsd file created with Visio 2002 or 2003 using
Explorer -> right mouse button -> open with -> Internet Explorer, I
get a blank page.

Already tried the following but nothing helped:
* Uninstall/Reinstall of Visio 2003 Viewer
* Repair of Visio 2003 Viewer
*  http://www.**--****.com/ 
* Install of Visio 2007 Viewer

Visio Professional 2003 is also installed on my pc, but I don't know
which was installed first: Visio or the Viewer.
But the problem appears also on pcs without Visio Pro. Currently we
have no other option than to advise our users to request that Visio
Pro is installed, but we would like to avoid that because of licensing
costs (and because most people don't need to edit Visio files anyway).

Interestingly, this problem does not occur on every pc, and the
problem started to appear only a few weeks ago. All pc configurations
should be the same, and I have no information about any differences
between pcs or anything that has changed since a few weeks (software
installation is for another department, I only do Office support).

TIA,

Could this be related?

"This is Damodar from Microsoft Customer Support Services.
I tried to contact you but was unable to touch base. I worked further
on
this issue and was able to reproduce the issue as mentioned by you.
I could not find any resolution or work around for this issue at this
point
in time. Also I would like to let you know that the issue is related
entirely
with the Visio Viewer and its interaction with Windows XP SP2.
At this point in time I can only escalate this issue but won't be able
to
give you an assurance on the resolution because this is related to
Visio
Viewer and ideally we do not provide hot fixes for Visio Viewer, for
that
matter any viewers unless there is a major security breach."

My collegue who has a WinXPsp1 can open Visio files with IE, and I
can't - I have WinXPsp2.
I still have to veryfy other sp1/sp2 installations.

*bump*
Nobody?

I found that opening a Visio file embedded as an ActiveX in an html
file works.
For example take the Visio file that the viewer installs as C:\Program
Files\Microsoft Office\Visio Viewer\1033\SAMP_HTM.HTM

 If you want the Visio Viewer to autoinstall when a user navigates to

 you will want to substitute the following line for the equivalent

Opening SAMP_HTM.HTM with IE -> works.
Opening SAMP_VDX.VDX with IE -> does not work, blank page.

I could use this workaround for the very few files that are referenced
from our intranet, but most Visio files wind up in all kinds of
strange and {*filter*} file shares, and our users should just have to
doubleclick them and have Internet Explorer open them using the Visio
Viewer.

The problem does not occur on all pcs, but we cannot find a difference
between a good and a bad box. Not even with filemon and regmon. (from
sysinternals) Service Packs, updates,... nothing seems to be a
determinating factor.

Dear lazyweb, do you have any suggestions?

We also have the same issue with all the same symptoms.
An additional comment on this issue is that the VSD will open in IE6 if it 
is on the local C: drive and not on a network or redirected folder.  Checked 
to see if there was an issue with long file names by creating a long path and 
file name on the C: drive.  The file still opens in IE6 as long as it is on 
the local drive.
I have checked out the following links with no luck because they don't apply:

3.Visio Viewer - Shows blank page in Internet Explorer

I've deployed the Visio Viewer to some Terminal Servers running Windows 2003 
x64 Server running IE6. The installation went perfect- however.

When trying to view visio documents, IE prompts me for an ActiveX control, 
then the IE page is blank. I've tried everything to fix this but to no avail.

What I've tried
1. Denying an IE settings from GPO and lowering all the security settigns
2. Uninstalling/Reinstalling Visio Viewer 2003 (x86)
3. Found some post suggesting KB932168 could cause this. I've uninstalled 
that hotfix. Didn't work. 

None of this is helping.

5.Visio viewer 2007 opens a Blank IE page

If your IE page is blank then I found what the issue is. If the Visio files were created on another PC then do this.

Right click on the file and go to properties on the general tab near the bottom where it says Security it will say something about the files was made on another PC and may be blocked. Click Unblock, apply, OK then double click it.

If the file was not made on another PC then then section will not be there.
