  • Its batter to use in enterprise CAL. But one tricky method by that you can use it in foundation. If you have SharePoint 2010 server than you can export Visio Web Access Webpart and than import on Sharepoint Foundation. You may export from below link:

  • Hi Mugdha,

    The steps to enable the Visio Web Access Webpart on your page are:
    1. Click on "Edit" tab and then hit the "Edit Page" button
    2. Click on a web part zone on the page
    3. Click on "Insert" tab and then hit the "Web Part" button
    4. Select the "Office Client Applications" category and select the "Visio Web Access" web part
    5. Press the "Add" button
    6. Open the Tool pane
    7. Specify the Web Drawing URL

    Visio Services is found in SharePoint 2010 Enterprise.

    A good run down on Visio Services (Visio Services Resources) can be found on Technet.

  • For SharePoint 2010 foundation, without the Visio Service in Enterprise Edition, you can display Visio file on web page with the “old fashioned” Visio Viewer ActiveX control. Please read http://blogs.msdn.com/b/elton/archive/2005/10/21/483452.aspx for detail.
