WBS Modeler for MS Visio and MS Project RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to get WBS Modeler to work with MS Project 2010 and MS Visio 2010.  It appears I am missing the adodb.dll from the installation.  How do I correct this matter?

    In short, the WBS modeler Tab does not show up in MS Visio top ribbon.  Visio displays the WBS modeler Add-In but as a folder but once I select the create button, I do not have the opportunity to select it as an option at the top of the ribbon.

    Files(x86)/Visio Add-In for WBS Modeler/adodb.dll did not succeed.

    Before you install “WBS Modeler add-in for Visio 2010”, these system requirements should be met:
    1.Visio Professional 2010 or Visio Premium 2010,
    2.Microsoft Office Project 2003 Service Pack (SP) 1 or later
    3.Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0.

    Then you need to enable the WBS Modeler add-in.
    1.Start Visio, and click File > Option > Add-in.
    2.On the Add-Ins tab click on the Go button at the bottom to manage the list of COM Add-ins.
    3.In the list of installed COM Add-ins check ‘WBSModeller.Connect’ and click on the OK button.

    Note: If you get an error after you click the OK button you may need to reinstall the WBS Modeler add-in. Based on the installation options you may need administrator rights on the machine.

    4. Close Visio and restart Visio.

    It's recommended to download and install Configuration Analyzer Tool (OffCAT), which is developed by Microsoft Support teams. Once the tool is installed, you can run it at any time to scan for hundreds of known issues in Office programs.
