The security update MS08-019 created an issue for the Visio Database
Modeling solution. For now, the only work around is to uninstall the
update (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;947650)

There is a fix under development, not yet available. I'll check again at
the end of the month and update this post and the others on this issue.

FYI - A fix has been released which will resolve this issue and allow you
to work with the DB Modeling solution after the installation of the
security update in MS08-019.

The new hotfix ID is 958641, and it is available now, but must be requested
through (no-charge) support. You can review the options for making contact
with the support organization on the website here :
http://support.microsoft.com/contactus/?ws=support

The article for the fix is : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/958641

Two items of note:
This update is basedline on Visio 2003 SP3, and unless that SP level is
installed, the update will not install.
The article is being updated, and currently doesn't list the db modeling
issue among the issues fixed.
