Upgrading to Visio for Enterprise Architects

I just upgraded to the latest Visio for Enterprise Architects. We use it primarily for modeling the Digipede Network database and generating DDL. The upgrade worked without a hitch. Be sure to do the following:

  • Uninstall Visio 2003.
  • Install Visio for Enterprise Architects.
  • If you are going to work with database diagrams, create a new blank one. Then check the Database/Options/Drivers dialog and make sure your driver is set correctly (e.g., to Microsoft SQL Server) and that your driver settings are correct. If you don’t do this your existing database diagrams won’t be read properly.

Now for the first time in recent memory, I have only one version of Visio on my machine. Now where are those Office12 discs . . .
