  • Hi All,

    Does anyone know if its possible / how to install Visio Viewer and Visio Professional 2016 on the same device?

    Scope: We have devices that are used by multiple users at different times. Some of our users have a Visio licence while others do not. The users who don’t have a licence have requested the ability to view Visio documents but they do not need to edit them.

    Visio Professional is installed to allow users who have a licence to view and edit documents.

    We also want to install Visio Viewer 2016 so users who don’t have a licence can easily open files using the plugin within IE.

    When we try to install Visio Viewer (while Professional is installed) the installer look to complete fine however the add-in never goes into IE and when a Visio file is using IE the content is never displayed.

    We are using Windows 7 and IE 11.

    Thank you in advance for any help/ advice.
