  • 1. when should I use the data shape vs. the document shape?
    I'm just curious which shape is used & when? I'm transferring data via an EDI document and I'm torn as to whether I should use the data or document shape. Just looking for opinions / rules that are commonly used. Thanks.
  • 2. How do I draw elevations in Visio for cabinet layouts?
    I'm using Visio for my first time and I've had great success working on the topical floorplan layout for my project. However, this is a 3D world and there are some layout issues in the vertical space that I need to work through. I'm not looking to convert my floorplan into 3D, I just want to be able to create a elevation drawing of the wall so I can organize the cabinets/storage visually. However, all of the shapes are pre-set for floorplan view and even the walls and doors seem to be only available as floorplan shapes. Am I missing something? Surely people who use Visio regularly have a need to see vertical drawings/elevations of their designs...

  • 5. visio hyperlinks don't work in viewer
    Using a VSD file I made on one computer then put it on anonther that I installed the 2003 viewer on. The file opens but the message of active X controls being blocked comes up. Can't get the correct settings in IE to eliminate this message and dialog box warning. Also when I click on a hyperlink to go to anothere page in the file the browser clears and the Active X being blocked banner comes back again. When I accept to allow Active X controls it just reloads the original page. I can not get to any other linked pages, that show up in the tabs on the bottom even though I could when I was actively in the Visio program itself. The same thing happens when I tried to export the file as HTML web pages.

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

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?

Do you know if the following update has been installed on the systems which 
have the problem?

932168	MS07-020: Vulnerability in Microsoft Agent could allow remote code 
execution
 http://www.**--****.com/ ;EN-US;932168

It appears that we have another customer who is seeing problems with IE6 
after installing this update.  In their case, the use of IE7 solves the 
problem - but our support teams were not able to reproduce the issue, so it 
appears to be related to group policy / security settings in IE. 

Check to see if that update is installed on a machine which currently has 
the issue, and then (if you can) update to IE7 to test again.

Barb,

I think *I* am that customer. William Pons is handling my case.
I started the inquiry here on the newsfroups before my supervisor
instructed me to make use of our support contract.

IE7 is a solution, yes, but we cannot deploy IE7 because of several
other issues, like ActiveX functionality that is blocked, and this
would require us to rewrite hundreds of web pages.

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:

The setting involved is under Tools > Internet Options > Advanced > Security 

I find this to be very unsecure and would like to see Microsoft come up with 
a fix ASAP. This affects over 15000 users for us who use diagrams as part of 
their daily functions.

Some users have found that problems introduced after installing MS07-020 
are alleviated after installing MS07-058, at least for Windows 2003 Server 
systems.

MS07-058 is documented at  http://www.**--****.com/

Any updates on this?

I'm having similiar issues. Any visio doc I click on directly on my local 
box come up blank. If I click on the sample .htm it works. We have about 2500 
machines and mine is the only one I know of reporting this. We have MS07-020 
and MS07-058 installed on our baseline.

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.
