Visio files fail to open - Installed is Outlook 2016, Visio Viewer 2016 and IE11 on Windows 10

Q: Visio files fail to open - Installed is Outlook 2016, Visio Viewer 2016 and IE11 on Windows 10

Visio files are received as attachments in Outlook 2016. Visio Viewer 2016 and IE11 are also installed on Windows 10 (1607).
Previewing the Visio file (VSD in this case) is successful. However, when you try to open the Visio file, IE11 attempts to open it (as expected) but only displays a blank page.
Does anyone know if there is a fix for this issue? Other articles suggest that Visio Viewer 2016 does not support IE11.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I use Microsoft Visio to design Traffic Control Plans for my business. Monday am I could suddenly not open any file including ones saved on flash drive. I have had 2 services look and we have uninstalled reinstalled did repair etc nothing works. Files say Corrupted how can 100's of files be that way. I noticed something when I was playing with it because it will open new sheets to draw on only to be "corrupted" as soon as saved and closed. I usually name them MHT #etc. If I name them drawing 1etc I can now open my new ones. Anybody out there use this program. I use Windows 7 Home Premium.

I am using Microsoft word 2016 and Visio 2013.
I put the Visio images directly in the word document and a Visio object is created.
However, if the file I have created is opened and saved in lower version than word 2016 (let's say word 2010) the visio object is shown as an unidentified object in my pc. Whereas, in the other pc where it was edited (which was having a lower

Hi,

At work, we recently upgraded from Visio 2000 to Visio 2003.

Mistake. Big mistake. Huge.

Now, when we try to edit the graphics, we get the same types of problems that many other users have reported: lines don't connect; text is improperly kerned (spaced between letters); text appears lighter (medium gray) in print and on screen; some elements don't display.

Has anyone been successful at getting Visio 2000 images into Visio 2003 format without heavy image editing?

I have Office 2007 and the Office 2010 Visio Viewer installed. Anytime I click on a vsd file, I am redirected to Internet Explorer where the Visio Viewer is launched. This is fine for browsing a Visio file. I can move the diagram around and zoom in for more detail.

However, when I want to print the Visio diagram I'm finding I cannot get it to work properly. First and foremost, Visio diagrams seem to work on a "boundless" paradigm. There is no real "border". If you move a diagram up, the scroll bars re-position to keep the diagram "centered". So, when I go to Print Preview, I find the diagram is too small. I want to zoom in on the diagram and have it print to fill the page, without unnecessary white space around this. But... this does not happen. The Visio Viewer does some kind of reduction, making the fonts look pixelated.

I can't for the life of me find a way to center the diagram to fill the page and then print this. I've tried a couple of separate tools, like visViewer, but they can't achieve this either. My "workaround" is to use visViewer to screen capture portions of a diagram, then bring those separate images into Photoshop and piece them together. This is laborious and tedious.

So am I missing something? Or is there a 3rd party Visio viewing tool that does a sufficient job and being able to print diagrams with a decent scaling function, so that a diagram will "fit to page" with good resolution? Heaven forb... Read more

A:Visio viewer -- terrible at printing

I believe the main issue with printing from microsofts viewer is related to a bitmap representation of a vector image - quality will always suffer in these circumstances

There are other (mostly if not all Free ) viewers for the format, have not used any of these as I have direct access to all versions of the Visio application but may be worth a check to see if anything better meets your needs

According to all sources that I could find on-line, it appears that rules are part of pst file.

However, this does not happening in my case.

I use outlook 2016 (part of MS office 2016) and have several accounts linked with this ? From my ISP (POP), Hotmail, yahoo, Gmail. I have rules only for account from my ISP.

Recently I deleted my Hotmail account, removed it from my outlook, deleted associated ost file. Then I had second thought and re-activated this hotmal account the following day. Added this to my outlook. To my surprise all rules vanished. Not a single rule remained. I did NOT have any rules setup for Hotmail account. Even column details for message folders (part of setting) got changed.

I decided to check further. Copied my pst files to another computer which had same version of outlook installed and has exactly the same setup.

Now I added some rules on my 1st computer. Checked the 2nd computer. The same rule appeared there. That means pst file does not contain rules.

So, Where are they?

Hope someone can help me. I am lost!!

"Patch Tuesday" broke our install of Outlook 365. It was working fine on Monday and on Tuesday it was hanging on "Processing." So I restored back to the last restore point before the update and it worked great after that. Yesterday it re-installed the updates, and again Outlook didn't load. Restoring again today "fixed" it. Now it wants to update again, so I will disable updates until the problem is fixed. I don't know which particular "patch" is causing the problem; there were about 22 of them that installed.

Panda and Avast are the lightest while Bitdefender can be heavy.

All 3 offer excellent protection (Avast requires tweaking; Bitdefender and Panda works out of the box), while Bitdefender is mainly known for its detection rate (signatures).

We have a Word document with a Visio object imbedded. On my PC, I can double click on the object and it goes into edit mode for Visio, where I can make changes. There is at least one other user on my network who, when she double clicks on the Visio object, gets an error that indicates the system is trying to open MS Project.

I have looked at file associations, but not sure where else to look to troubleshoot. If the other user right clicks on the Visio object and then chooses edit from the menu, it brings up the Visio editor properly. So this isn't an emergency, but it is very strange.

Why do I get updates (via Microsoft Update) to Outlook and Visio when these two programs are not part of Office 2010 Home & Student?

If Outlook/Visio are on my HD as trial versions, any way to remove them permanently? I don't intend to use either one...

Thanks.

A:Office 2010 Home & Student - Outlook and Visio Updates

It's my experience that Microsoft includes all updates for the Office applications, simpler than trying to figure out what users actually have installed. It's complicated by the ability to Custom install only those parts the user wants regardless of what the suite includes.

I've only seen Visio as a separate install, mine is a separate downloaded file. Outlook is part of one of the more complete versions of Office [by more complete I mean more expensive].

Use Control panel, default programs, associate a file type - you have more options to select version.

If your 2016 is the desktop version, you have to bury into menus by clicking more apps and scrolling until you find "look for another app on this pc", and then navigate to the 2016 excel executable.

A:F-Secure Internet Security 2016 vs Panda Free Antivirus 2016

If a security soft ranks amongst the top performing AVs, it won't matter much if it does function correctly or causes problems on your specific system.

From lab test results F-Secure has an edge over Panda during testing the past few years in terms of detection (although higher false positives).

From users, it seems more prefer Panda - which is one of Neil Rubenking's (PCMag) favs (that don't mean much - but that is just my opinion).

I'd say, in terms of overall protection, Panda has a slight edge; it might protect your system in a few instances that F-Secure will not.

I'm looking to map out each room within the network on a separate tab within it and link each connection through the tabs so it will flip to the specified connection on that tab. In total it is approximately 15 rooms, 30 Windows based OS machines, 20 LaserJet printers routed through ExtendNet printer (hubs or routers I think, not 100% sure, ethernet cable goes in one end, parallel cable comes out the other) and a few switches and patch panels in racks in the larger offices.

Fully updated besides KB3170106 (This update. Fails) and KBs 2952664, 3021917, 3068708 and 3080149, which I have hidden (Just telemetry crap I believe?).

What I've Tried:
? CHKDSK (Now comes back clean). - Log Attached.

? SFC /Scannow (Detects errors, unable to repair). Also tried this from Safe Mode, and the Repair Mode Command Prompt on my Windows Boot disk, same result. - Log Attached.

? System Update Readiness Tool - (Detects errors, unable to repair) - Log Attached.

? Downloading 2 of the updates that errored in SURT, placed them in Windows\CheckSur\packages directory, which fixed two of the error lines, but still many errors left, as well as errors with the .mum and .cat files of those are updates still present. (This one is strange as one of the updates is KB2952664 which I had hidden and NOT installed..). The log I have attached is from a re-run after this one.

? Downloading the KB3170106 update manually - Still errors. (Said successful once, but obv wasn't).

Resources Available:
? Full Admin access to the problem PC
? A separate Windows 7 Pr... Read more

I found the tutorial in this forum called, "How to Import Windows Contacts into Outlook 2010." It all looked very much like Outlook 2016, so I followed the same steps to import my Contacts list from Windows 7 Contacts to Outlook 2016. Everything seemed to go okay, but I cannot find them in Outlook. Is there a different process to use for importing Windows Contacts to Outlook 2016? Maybe I don't know where to look for them, but there is nothing there when I try to open the Address Book in Outlook 2016. Is there another place where I should look? Thanks!

My Windows XP Media Center has an Nvidia graphics card in it, and after the system performs it's initial boot-up POST displaying the normal system info, windows xp starts-up and then my HDTV screen goes blank. The computer is still on and I can access shared music and files on it from another computer, but I have nothing displaying to my HDTV. I am using the RGB connection from the graphics card to the HDTV. I have also tried to use the s-video connection to the TV and that doesn't work either. I also tried to connect up a standard computer monitor to the computer, but nothing displays there either. Again, I get the normal windows "WINDOWS XP" startup banner displaying, then my screen goes blank and nothing will display from that point on until I physically reset the computer, then this process starts all over again.

After installing the Security Updates from the October 2016 Rollup/Quality Update. IE crashes when you open an .eml file. An application hosting a WebBrowser control (ieframe.dll) also crashes when doing that. This happens on Win7 and Win10 (maybe others
I couldn't test).

During my initial Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 Pro upgrade, I lost my Outlook 2016 contacts. They are backed up on iCloud (on the same Win 10 desktop) from my iPhone, but I don't know how to copy them to the Outlook 2016 contacts file. Can anyone help?
