In Microsoft Visio 2007, there was a "Software & Database" template to be able to draw ER diagrams. In Visio 2010, this template is missing. Does anyone know if this template (and others missing) can be downloaded and installed in Visio 2010? Can you explain how this can be done?
Based on the answers posted and comments, I've done the following.
The templates might have been installed incorrectly here, which conflicts with one of the comments posted about the path of these templates. Notice two "Office14" folders:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\Office14\Visio Content\1033
I was able to get some of the templates to show up (File > New) by doing the following:
- Microsoft Visio
- File Locations (button at very bottom)
- then specify the path above for the “Templates” field.
You may have to restart Visio.
This however does NOT allow access to DBMODL_U.VST (Database Modeling template), probably because the DBMODL_U.VSS file is missing.
I've also tried moving the
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\Office14\Visio Content folder into
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14, but that did not do anything, even after a Windows restart.
