Problems with IPropertyStore and Visio RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to read all properties  of Visio file ( both .vsd and .vsdx) with SHGetPropertyStoreFromParsingName() and looping all properties of the property store (only 43 properties available).

    For doc and docx formats this works perfectly, all comments etc are available and the value is correct (over 70 properties available).

    But for Visio documents only some basic set of properties is available, no comments, tags etc. Only filename, size etc. But the Windows Shell does show them in the details dialog so reading them programmatically must be possible.

    Is this known deficiency ? How does the shell find out those values ? The os is Win7/64 enterprise,  currently the program is written with c++ (and is 32bit). 

    Any idea why Visio documents miss those properties.
