  • Which version of Visio do you have on your system and are you able to create Excel based reports?  In the "olden" days if the Project version didn't match the Excel/Visio version (eg Project 2010 with Excel 2013), you needed to put a shortcut into the folder where winproj.exe was running to the relevant executable, eg visio.exe or excel.exe.  From the error message this looks like a similar issue.
