I cannot get Visio 2007 to install into an xp bottle. I'm running Ubuntu Hardy. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Hello,

You could check out the information linked into this forum post - http://www.codeweavers.com/compatibility/browse/name/?app_id=2840;forum=1;msg=29676

The link + accompanying info are in the second post, after the gigantic log file.  Perhaps it might help?

Hi Jack,

Thank you for your response. The suggestion seems to be use cxgame. Is that a separate app from cx linux standard?

I was successfully able to install Visio 2007 just yesterday. It seems to be working fine. I installed it into the same bottle that I installed Office 2007 and Onenote 2007. On all installs I did a custom install, right clicked the root option in the options tree and told it to install everything locally. I don't know if that is what made the difference. I am also running ubuntu hardy with the 2.6.24-19 kernel. The install took a long time, but it finished.

I'm curious are you using 64-bit or 32-bit version?  I dont think there is a difference but I am noticing I *seem* to have better luck with 64-bit.  Also, are you installing Visio Std or Pro version?   I am trying to get a handle on if there is a differenct as I have had mixed results trying various options of installing Visio 2007.   The more reliable seems to be to install it from a copy of the CD on the HD.

I managed to get this working under a Windows XP bottle, the steps I followed where:

1. Create a new blank Windows XP bottle
2. Install Microsoft XML Parser (MSXML) 3.0 Service Pack 5 (SP5) into the bottle (msxml3.msi)
3. Install Microsoft Core XML Services (MSXML) 6.0 into the bottle (msxml6.msi)
4. Install Microsoft .NET Framework Version 1.1 Redistributable Package (dotnetfx.exe)
5. Finally start the Visio 2007 install

Hope this helps

Using the instructions in the previous post, I was successful at installing Visio 2007 Standard, including online activation.  I just googled for the filenames and downloaded them from MS.  Thanks!  

Good:  Visio 2007 seems to work fine
Bad:  Saving to SVG fails; saving to wmf or emf and converting with (TeX's) wmf2eps fails.  So I have yet to be able to use Visio under Linux to create vector diagrams that I can include in LyX.

How to get PS or EPS output from Visio 2007 under linux.  When I tried to export to SVG it failed.

1. Install Visio 2007 as above
2. Create a diagram
3. Reset the page size to fit diagram. File -> Page Setup… -> Page Size -> Size to fit drawing contents
4. Print to a PostScript printer you have defined in CUPS under linux. My HP LJ2200 is a PS printer, so it was already on the list. Select the “Print to file” box and press OK. In the file dialog that opens, name your file whatever.ps.
5. Reset the bounding box of whatever.ps: ps2epsi whatever.ps. This yields whatever.epsi.
6. Include whatever.epsi into Lyx or Latex and enjoy

I got Visio 2007 Professional to install using those above instructions, but every time I try to open a file, etc., the program crashes immediately.

Any ideas? Maybe it's a Standard vs Professional thing?

I have upgraded to Crossover 7.1.0 and Visio Standard 2007 is still working for me, though I have not tried a fresh install.  Can you draw diagrams and save them, or is really nothing working?  Perhaps try saving in different places too.

Nothing works. Hitting "Open" or "New" crashes immediately, as does attempting to open a template.

The program on start says that there are new files to download, which I assume is service pack 1? If so, I tried installing that to the bottle, and installation failed.

I was able to get this working! I used the x64 version of xsxml6 since I'm running 64-bit Ubuntu. Didn't think it would make a difference, but it works now, albeit things render very slowly.

Same deal here- 32 bit, followed instructions (including with and without custom install, separate bottle, complete install. It starts but I can't open any existing files or create new ones. If I could get this running I could delete MS XP completely....

Followed Enigma's instructions to the letter and it works just fine for me so far (opening existing and new documents). Also note that I installed the XML Parser 3.0, SP5, and not the more recent Service Pack that's available from MS.

Looks like I was just kidding.. except maybe not. I moved the bottle from my notebook (Lenovo T61) to my desktop (custom built). Both are running Ubuntu Intrepid 8.10. I'm not sure why it works on my notebook but not the desktop. I'll keep playing with it.

I have a 64bit debian system and a 32bit ubuntu.

Installing Visio 2007 succeeds on both systems in a winxp bottle.

However, Visio crashes instantly when trying to open any visio file on the 32bit system. 64bit runs fine.

Curiously, visio on the 32bit system looks slightly different to the visio running on my 64bit debian ( same install cd , same install process )

One Other thing that fails on both is trying to install visio 2007 into a bottle where office 2007 (without visio) exists already.

The support knowledgebase solved this for me :)

On my ubuntu system do:-
sudo apt-get remove ttf-oriya-fonts

Okay so I am running Crossover mac 8 and have tried installing Visio 2007 many times in various ways including the tip in this thread, and all have failed.  Can anyone provide any ideas or insight?

I followed the instructions listed here for installing Visio 2007 in an XP bottle.  I finally got the install to work, but I'm having the same problem as a couple of others here, I can't open a file, open a template, create a new file or traverse the menus without Visio immediately crashing.  I'm using RHEL 5.4.  Has anyone had any experience with this configuration?

Coming in late on this thread -

I run xo 7.1.0 because I am to cheap to upgrade.  I had Visio 2003 running for a year fine under Ubuntu 8.1, 32bit installed on an AMD64 desktop machine.

Several days ago Visio would crash after attempting to create new or open existing file (ttf-oriya-fonts not installed).  Uninstalled xo and Visio and reinstalled (windows habits die hard), no avail.

I decided to install my copy of Visio 2007, same system.  I used the instructions here and installed with no problem, program works great.  Thanks.

Ever share a bottle of wine?

Built a Visio 2007 bottle for a friends Ubuntu 9.04, AMD64 machine.  Installed as "Office 2007" in software selection under configuration (did not install 2007 Office Suite, just Visio 2007).  Installed, program works great.

Attempted to install Visio 2007 as Office 2007, Ubuntu 8.1, AMD64 - no go.

Hope this helps.  Visio should be better supported.

I installed Visio 2007 into Crossover Mac 8 and it worked great. Applied SP1, no prob. Cannot apply SP2, though. Has anyone succeeded in installing Visio 2007 SP2 in Crossover Mac into an XP bottle?

I installed Visio 2007 (exe file downloaded from Microsoft) into Crossover 9.0.

Running 64bit Ubuntu 9.10.

If followed the instructions above to install MSXML 6.0 and .Net 1.1 into a new bottle. Then selected unsupported install to install the .exe file.
