What works

Installation almost completed and failed the first time, but subsequent running of setup.exe from local c: drive properly recognized and repaired the installation.

With the "gdiplus" library set to native, the application launches and behaves normally. The startup dialog works, allowing selection of templates, and the templates work. Drag and drop of icons and connectors work normally, and keyboard shortcuts are all active. Document save and re-open work normally.

What does not

The language settings toolbar has a black overlay on it, and when the settings dialog is opened (by guessing) the option to disable the nonworking toolbar is not available. This is not a core component of Viso, but is installed by the Office 2003 installer.


What was not tested

No testing of VBscript, sharepoint tools, SOAP, or any other firewall-perforating features.

HowTo / Notes

Native alternatives for non-windows platforms
There are some good alternatives to this application that might exist for your platform. You'll find a list on the main page of this application.
Set gdiplus to native in winecfg. (There is no need to install it with winetricks, as Visio installs its own version.)
