Microsoft Visio 2010

Microsoft Visio 2010

Microsoft Visio, also known as Microsoft Office Visio, is a 2D-object drawing application and a part of the Microsoft Office suite. The present version, Microsoft Visio 2010 for Windows, is available in three editions: Standard, Professional and Premium. The Standard and Professional editions both share the same interface, but the latter has extra templates for more advanced diagrams and layouts as well as unique functionality that intends to make it easy for users to connect their diagrams to a number of data resources and show the information graphically. The Premium edition has three additional diagram types with intelligent rules support, validation and sub process (diagram breakdown) support. Its present version, Visio 2010, was released on June 15, 2010. The latest prerelease version, Visio 2013 Preview, was released on July 16, 2012, along with the beta release of Microsoft Office 2013. Due to its owned file format, few other programs can able to read Visio files. However, Visio can read and write files as VDX files. VDX is a XML Schema based and well-documented file format. With VDX it is able to work with an XML based file format without the need to use the old binary file format VSD. Visio uses VSD by default.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .vsx files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .vsx. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
