  • Hi CReyesAzze,

    Thank you for posting in the MSDN Forum.

    Could you please give more detailed information on your system configuration? I want to know

    • Your System version and bit.
    • Do you have multiple versions of Office installed on your computer? What's your Office version?
    • Can upload your project file? If it is not confidential, you can upload it to SkyDrive make it accessible and share the link.

    Besides, I've found this blog which might be useful for Visio developers.
