Visio 2010 SDK - Solution Publishing


Joe P

I downloaded the VIsio 2010 SDK so I could update some published Stencils and
Templates for Visio 2010.... I previously had them published under 2007, so
I'm famaliar with the tools... I've got two problems with the new Solution
Publishing tool...

First: If I choose to publish the Stencil or Template using the "2003 or
later" checkbox (under Stencil Information or Template Information dialog
boxes, respectivly)... Neither the Stencils or Templates show up in Visio
2010. However, if I choose "Visio 2010 only" as the option, then the stencil
or template is then available in Visio 2010... I'm fine with selecting the
2010 only optiion, as I don't expect to need to update the stencils to work
with previous versions in the future, except....

Second: I've got about a dozen stecil groups, and half dozen Templates to
publish... Within the Solution Publishing Tool, in the Template / Stencil
Info window, if I check the "Visio 2010 Only" option on any of the items to
publish then I cannot check it on subsequent items.

To reproduce the issue:
I open my MSI with the stencils and templates I want to publish... Double
click the first item in the list (or right click and choose Edit Row, doesn't
matter)... I uncheck "Visio 2003 or later" for the first item, the "Visio
2007 only" and "Visio 2010 only" checkboxes become available. I select
"Visio 2010 only" and then fill in the appropriate menu path and Click OK.
Then when I open the next item to publish, and uncheck "Visio 2003 or later",
neither the 2007 or 2010 checkboxes are available (they are greyed out and
cannot be checked). From that point, I can never get the 2007 or 2010
checkboxes to be active for any item in the list. Changing the LCID, Visio
edition, does not appear to have an effect on the problem.

I'm running the Solution Publishing Tool on Win7 Enterprise... I've tried
running both with and without Administrative rights and there's no difference
in the behaviour. I am not publishing any Add-ons or Help Files with the Sol
Pub Tool, only stencils and templates.

Can someone push this up to the Visio team to see if they can fix the tool?
Also, can someone point me to the proper documentation for the updated
ComponentID's for Visio 2010 for the PublishComponent table? I can't seem to
find the updated info for Visio 2010 on the net or within the docs that came
with the Visio SDK.
