E / R Diag to Database Creation

Hi,
Developing using VS2008.
Developed an E/R diag for a database in Visio Professional 2007.
When I went to Generate database, Help file said No. I needed 'Office
Visio for Enterprise Architects.'
Unable to find any mention of this mythical beastie in MSDN Subscriber
downloads. (Help file states it is available with MSDN Premium)

So ignoring the version that comes bundled with VS2005 team edition,
where can I find version of Visio that will let me generate my
database?
thanks
Bob

VEA that came with VS 2005 was it. It was based on a version of Visio 2003.
I have not heard of any plans to upgrade it.

Hi John,
So anybody who has moved to Visio 2007 and uses VS2008 is out in the
cold.
Yet the product entices you to waste your time developing an E/R diag
which you can't leverage.
Brilliant.
I'll go one step further and bet if I was stupid enough to install
VS2005 and team edition that copy of Visio wouldn't accept my 2007
diag.
You know, bugs can be tolerated, but I find this sort of glaring
stupidity hard. It turns my morning coffee sour.
I will find a 3rd party program and start again.
thanks
Bob
