Here's another option: Save the drawing in Visio's XML format; the result is a text file, albeit a very large text file (at least 4-5X the size of the VSD). Open the XML file in Notepad and search for "template". The first occurrence should contain: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\visio content\1033\UMLMOD_U.VST If it doesn't, set it to that value (note: "Program Files" might need to be "Program Files (x86)" depending on the bit-ness of Windows and Office). Save the changes to the text file. Open the VDX file in Visio. If all is now good, resave as VSD.

One more thought. As you pointed out in your question, copying all of the pages in your doc to a new doc is too cumbersome. However, Paul Herber's Visio Super Utilities can do that for you. Try sandrila.co.uk/visio-utilities You can use it 30 times for free. If the problem is a broken template association, this might solve the problem.

If you create and save a new UML document, does the template name on the Info page also show "UMLMOD_M.vst" or does it display "UML Model Diagram". I ask because with Visio 2010, I see the latter and am curious that your doc shows the former.
