I'm trying to display Office Add-in errors for Visio 2016.

A guide for earlier versions of Office (here, here) states:

In the General section of the details pane, select Show add-in user interface errors, and then click OK

From an Excel guide - because nothing specific to Visio can be found - (here), it supposedly can be enabled like so

Excel

However, in Visio 2016 there is no such setting.

I tried setting the “VSTO_SUPPRESSDISPLAYALERTS” environment variable to 0 as in this guide (here), but still no COM add-in error alerts or messages appear.

Another guide (here) explains how to troubleshoot Add-in errors, but not display error alert messages.

How to display detailed Visio 2016 COM Add-in error messages similar to this one below?

  • As far as I know there is no such feature in Visio. Visio was not originally a Microsoft product, it was bought in 2000 (or thereabouts) so has a different development history. It would be a useful feature though. – Paul Herber Feb 13 '17 at 10:49
