  • 2. #Name error - why?
    Hello! I've got a very strange problem. I get a #Name error when running this seemingly simple code: If (vsoShape.CellsSRCExists(visSectionProp, 1, visCustPropsValue, False) = True) Then vsoShape.CellsSRC(visSectionProp, 1, visCustPropsValue).Formula = "bla" Although the desired cells is found the error comes nevertheless. Am I missing something very basic here? Greetings, Christian

    Hi I have been tasked with designing, or at least outputting visio diagrams form Access 2007, I believe there is a sample database somewhere with info on how to do this. Please can someone point me to it, or inform me if I am going down the wrong track and let me know if this is just not feasible. Basically I need to output Idef0 diagrams. BTW, I have never worked with Visio before so I am on crash here Also any help or pointers that you can provide to me will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance Cya

Cannot Edit .MSI File with Visio Publish Component Tool

Postby QW5kcmV3aW5LQw » Fri, 24 Aug 2007 04:28:04 GMT

I have a simple MSI file (created with InstallShield) that install a Visio 
template and three supporting stencils. I update the various attributes, and 
then click on the exclamation point button to update the MSI.

I get an error message that states, "ERROR: Problem writing to MSI database."

Any ideas??? Is this because I used InstallShield to build the MSI instead 
of Visual Studio? 

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,

Andrew in KC

One additional piece of information. The initial MSI I was trying to update 
was digitally signed. I built a new MSI that was not digitally signed. I 
still have the same problem.

You might edit msi file with Orca.

1.Cannot edit Visio drawing file (.vsd) in SharePoint

After we upload a Visio drawing file (.vsd) to a document library in 
SharePoint, we can successfully view it when directly clicking the link. But 
when we try to edit this file on the site by clicking Edit in Microsoft 
Office Visio, nothing happens. The file cannot be opened in Visio and no 
error message. We have Visio Professional 2002 installed in the client PC.

Any idea about this problem?

Thanks.

2.HowTo: Create the installer for Add-on (.exe) as component-publish

After creating .msi file for Visio Add-on (.exe) developed by VB.NET, I 
populated PublishComponent table in the .msi file by using Visio Solution 
Publishing Tool.

Using the .msi file, I installed the Add-on (.exe) to a target computer but 
Visio did not treat it as component-published to the registry.

Does anyone let me know how to create the installer for Visio Add-on (.exe) 
as component-published under VB.NET?

Your step-by-step instruction is highly appreciated.

3.problem with visio solution publishing tool

I'm having problems with the visio 2003 publishing tool in so far as
Visio is unable to find the templates or stencils I've added.  In some
of the many configurations I've tried Visio will place entries for the
menu paths I'm interested in creating into the Visio menu heirarchy,
but when I click on the file icon Visio errors out, saying:

[quote]
Visio could not find this template.
An error occurred and this feature is no longer functioning properly.
Would you like to repair this feature now?
[/quote]

Repairing is unsuccessful.

I've downloaded the Visio 2003 SDK, built my own msi file (using Orca
and the Windows Installer SDK) and merged the PublishComponent Data
generated by the Solution Publishing Tool into my msi file.  The msi
file seems to be constructed properly; when I install the files appear
where I want them to and the Windows shortcuts I create find the files
just fine.  Both files and shortcuts are removed when I uninstall.  However, 
Visio still can't seem to find the files.

I Googled this fairly heavily, not to mention MSDNing it, to no avail.
Has anyone had or solved this problem?  Conversely has anyone been able to 
successfully use the Publishing tool that would be willing to share some 
screen shots so I can check what I'm doing against what is known ti be 
successful?

Thanks in advance;
cori

5.Visio Solution Publishing Tool & LCIDs

Hi All,

I've been trying to use the Visio Solution Publishing Tool that comes with
the Visio 2003 SDK.

For templates, you can set an LCID, which is 0 by default, and 1033 for US
English.

On my machine, if I set it to anything other than 1033, then the template
does not show up in Visio's nice "Choose New Drawing" page, although
everything does get installed. (Even when I change my regional settings to
german!)

Problem is, I have a swiss customer that perhaps runs english on french
machines, or french on french machines. How do I get the template to install
"properly" on all machines?

BTW, if I open the msi file for the  Visio SDK files, all components have
1033 for their LCIDs.

What is the Visio Solution Publishing Tool  not telling us!?!?

- Chris.
