    What about Visio technical beta testers? I got a copy of Office for being part of the technical beta but I don't want Office but I would like a copy of Visio for being part of its technical beta program.

    I hope Visio 15 includes all of the features that Visio for Enterprise Architects 2005 did (the version based on Visio 2003).

    I have a few .dwg files I would like to use in the Visio environment.  I downloaded the Visio 2007 trial version for testing.  When I insert the CAD drawing I get the error "May not be supported version of the .dwg format".  Do I need another version of Visio?

    I would like to test VIsio but the link to its trial download does not work.

    Could you propose an alternate solution?

    Also , is VISIO2010 compabitlbe with Microsoft Office 2007 main programs?

    Thanks in advance

    Totally shocked!!

    Having been using MS software for over 20 years. I have multiple copies of Office Professional 2007 and see absolutely no reason to chuck these on the scrap heap, by purchasing full licenses of Office 2010.

    The reason I am posting this here, is that I was considering upgrading my current Visio Pro 2007, but could not find the upgrade path. Some research online revealed the ugly truth.

    I am sure that the Visio Team is excited to see the launch of Visio 2010, but I for one am not. Nice product, but not worth the full price when I have a full license for 2007.

    Get real Microsoft!! By not providing an upgrade path (even a download one without media) is a kick in the teeth to hitherto loyal customers.

    Come down from your ivory tower, these are hard, cash-strapped times – as a small business I cannot justify purchasing another full copy of Visio for a handful of new features. I would love to hear a business case from one of the team.

    What is the upgrade path for Visio 2003?

    Hi Dan – there isn't one!!!

    Not from 2003, not from 2007, nothing!!!
