Visio 2019 Viewer RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Is the Visio 2019 Viewer already released and where can i download it?
    If that's not the case, is it possible to open a Visio 2019 File with Visio 2016 Viewer or are there compatibility problems?

    Thanks in advance!

  • Hi,

    According to the article Use Visio Viewer to view or print Visio drawings, Microsoft Visio 2016 Viewer is the latest version of Visio Viewer. 

    By using Microsoft Visio 2016 Viewer, users can freely view Visio drawings (files with a .vsdx, .vsdm, .vsd, .vdx, .vdw, .vstx, .vstm, .vst, or .vtx extension).

    The article also applies to Visio Professional 2019 and Visio Standard 2019, so it's possible to open a file saved in Visio 2019 with Visio Viewer 2016. Currently, I don't find that there are any reports on related compatibility issues.

    Hope the information was helpful.

    Best Regards,
