  • 1. Printing database model
    Hi All I am using VISIO 2007 and have created a database model and would like to print it out with table properties, notes, column properties, information etc. However when I print I see only a picture of the tables and nothing about the detailed database properties that I spent so much time entering. Also how do I build SQL/ make a database with the model I created here? Is this tool not capable of doing this basic stuff? Very frustrated! TIA
  • 2. Visio Prof 2007 for database modelling Progress/OpenEdge databases
    Can Visio Professional 2007 reverse engineer a Progress 9.1E database? I was not able to. I have an ODBC driver for Progress that successfully allows other software packages (such as Excel for example) to view the schema of the Progress database. Visio allows me to select this ODBC driver; however, it first wants me to select a Visio driver (and I'm not sure which Visio driver to select). -- L. Jahn

It's possible that you may be missing one or more IE6 Security updates, as 
we have seen this occur before.

Check using Windows Update or Microsoft Update to see if there are any 
hidden updates that you have skipped installing.
Also, check specifically for update MS07-057

We are having same problem.

I could only narrow down to removing following two patches. But it doesn't 
work on all machines. Patches removed from test machines are KB943460, 
KB933729

any help will be greatly appreciated.

There are a number of different IE updates which have impacted the behavior 
of ActiveX controls loading in IE6.  Since the Viewer is a control, the 
users need the ability to see/approve of the use of the control. Some 
systems have Group Policies in place which suppress the information bar, 
which can impact the Viewer.

Also, there have been some Security Updates which seem to have a direct 
impact on the way the Viewer loads.  Check to see if you have MS06-020 
installed. If so, then you want to ensure that MS06-033 is also installed.  
Some systems (at least a few Server 2003 machines, in particular) have also 
needed MS06-057 
( http://www.**--****.com/ ;EN-US;939653).

Hope that helps!

I'm quite willing to accept the epithet MisterStateTheObvious (with
the rider that I have over 30 years experience of writing software)
but wouldn't a Visio viewer application built from the Visio source
code be not be a very easy option?

1. disable all the standard Visio start up behaviour to choose the
diagram type.
2. disable most of the now inappropriate menus and toolbars. The only
menus needed are Open, Print, Print Preview, maybe View -> Zoom. You
might also want to keep Find and Goto Page.
3. disable macros.
4. disable the appropriate CMNDs.
5. disable VBA. COM and automation
6. new startup splash screen
7. no Options, no security settings, no registry entries

That's probably > 95% of the work done.

The only downside is that you would have an application that pigs out on 
space, but does not do much.

PS: I made the same argument for the first Visio viewer. In Visio 1 and 2, 
there was a demo version that could be used as a "Viewer", but for later 
versions there was no "free" viewer. So stripping down Visio was suggested, 
but there was a long list of reasons why it could not be done. File bloat 
was a key problem.

Thanks all for your assistance.

C'mon, guys - there's a wonderful viewer out on the Office Online site.  
It's called the Trial ... after 30 days, it's a viewer :-)

 ... I'm KIDDING.  But it would work, and be really big, as John noted.

and that is what we recommended in the old days on the CompuServe forum, 
before Visio 3.0.

1.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.
