I added an installer program for VisioExportToXaml so that you can just try the export without being forced to compiling the source. I also made some minor UI changes.

How to Install

  • Remove any previous versions of VisioExportToXaml
  • Make sure you've installed Visio 2007.
  • Download the ZIP for the installer from the VisioExportToXAML codeplex project and extract to a folder
  • Then run the Setup.EXE.
  • If needed .NET Framework 3.5 and VSTO 3.0,  will be downloaded and installed.
  • Once the install is finished verify that it is enabled in Visio...
  • In Visio, navigate to Tools / Trust Center

  • Click Add-Ins
  • Verify that Manage is set to "COM Add-ins"
  • Click Go

  • Check VisioExportToXAML if it is not already checked (In the screenshot below you'll see that the reason that there was a failure loading the add in ... something I've seen with Windows XP but not with Vista)
