    We have an 802.11 wireless planning tool written in C# which utilizes Visio Professional 2003 in the backend.  Our customers love it because it saves their WLAN plan as a native Visio file.  They also love the ability to import CAD files, but Visio 2003 does not support anything past CAD 2003.   This is a key feature of our product, but most CAD drawings are now saved in a later version.

    Also would like to know about the Visio API limitations of only supporting .NET 1.1 and not .NET 2.0.  Is this going to be fixed in 2007?

    Cannot convert a DWG file in Visio 2010. Is there something I am missing? What version of AutoCAD should the client be saving the file in?

    Thank you!

    In the Visio 2010 help I find that it must be possible to export masters to serveral differrente file types. (Including DXF). I created a small program that exports a master from a stencil to BMP format. This works fine but I would like to know how to export to DXF format. (Just changing the file extension generates an error in VB)

    Hi I am trying to save a Visio file into DWG so I can send it to someone using autocad, they cant see anything when they open the file. It seems to save fine.

    Can you help???

    I have used Visio for last 10 years and I am at the point of changing to Auto CAD so I can take the DWG from the oil refinery and set it into Visio 2007 for Chemical Cleaning procedures.
