Visio 2010 SDK - Solution Publishing

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.

How to remove unprotected servers from DPM 2010
In DPM 2007, to remove an unprotected computer that no longer existed you just ran the task to uninstall the agent from that computer. The uninstall would fail (since the computer was not online) and you were given the option to delete the computer from DPM. In DPM 2010, the uninstall fails like in 2007, but then you are NOT given that same option to delete the computer from DPM. Is there a power shell command or script to remove these de-commisioned computers from DPM? If you are using Post beta builds you can run Remove-Productionserver.ps1 to remove the agent fr...

Excel 2010 to be able to embed like Google Apps?
I am using Google Apps, but with Office making a move to web apps I want to start using it when its released. With Google apps, I am able to use your spreadsheet app, then publish it as an public HTML file. When I want to update that HMTL file, I open the related spreadsheet and update it. I click save and the public HTML file is updated within a few min. Will Excel 2010 do that? I assume something like that will be ready on SharePoint 2010, but how about Skydrive? ...

When is Microsoft coming out with updated version of Publisher?

The dreaded 'Publisher cannot open files from a different version'
I have two .PUB files that won't open in Publisher 2000 SP-3 for Windows 2K. Using Notepad, I searched the files' raw coding and found that they were created in "Publisher 3.0". Is that 95 or 97? Anyway, nothing I do can make Publisher 2K open these files. The other threads suggest turning off Norton AntiVirus. My machine has the Symantec corporate version and I don't have Admin rights to turn it off. Any suggestions would be great. Version 3 is Microsoft Publisher for Windows 95. If you really want them opened, send them to me and I will convert them to 2000. gsau...

Publish A Workbook Onto The Web, Then Access Using My Web Browser.
How do I access my spreadsheet, or workbook, on the web once I've saved it as a webpage from the file menu? I've found that even though I've save my workbook as a webpage, it does not have an http:// address which I can type in my web browser to access the workbook from my home computer or from a remote computer.

solution: how to sum/add a column pasted from internet
Numbers pasted from online bank statements often have a space character in front of the number values -- as though someone had hit the space bar in each cell before typing the number. You have to get rid of the spaces. You can either manually delete each extra space at the front of the number, or, paste the numbers into Word, and do a Find & Replace All for the space, so that all the spaces are removed (a function I couldn't find in Excel). Once the spaces are gone, your problem should be solved. Did you try the TRIM Function to get rid of leading and trailing spaces? =TRIM(A1) wil...

Problem of viewing the text in Visio 2003
hi all, I've a visio 2003 doc with most of the texts in font size of 6pt or 5pt. I setup to 150% zoom to view it. It has no viewing problem so far. However, when I open up the doc today, all the texts are displayed like a rectangular block. I can't see each character at all. Only the text in 10pt or higher can be display correctly. Or if I increase the zoom to 300%, then I can see the texts. And I found that all of my docs have the same display problem. Can anyone help? Many thx. With me it works. Has the font changed, or the display settings in the control panel ? Changing ...

LOL @ Publisher Viewer
As many times as I've seen requests about a publisher viewer, it would seem a good request to Microsoft to put on the Publisher packaging that there is no viewer available. At least every purchaser of Publiser would know immediately. Microsoft could even suggest that the purchaser buy an additional Publisher package for anyone he might want to send Publisher files to. Hmmmm--seems like a good marketing tool to me. Can I have a nickel for every time that has been asked here?

Can not paste in Publisher if IE browser is open
If we copy an image from the Internet, Publisher will not allow you to paste it into your document until you close the browser. Happens in Win 2K and Win XP, IE 6 & IE 7, using Publisher 2003. We get the following error: "The clipboard is busy. Publisher cannot currently cut, copy or paste your data because another program is using the clipboard. Wait a moment and try again, or close other programs and try again." Once we close the browser we can paste with no problem. We can also paste into Word with the browser still open.

Embedded Visio (and other) objects in ppt, but app not available?
I've embedded Excel/Word/Visio objects in my powerpoint slide deck. This allows me to doctor the content using the source applications without creating separate external files for those objects. However, there is no guarantee that the venue at which I present the powerpoint slides will have the apps (Excel, Word, Visio). Mind you, they are likely to have Excel and Word, but not so much Visio. I remember running into similar snafu in the past, but I don't recall exactly what the limitation was when the Visio app is not present. I am also having difficulty finding a computer ...

CRM SDK logging?
Is there a logging feature in the SDK? For example, to see exactly which APIs are getting called by whom etc. I understand even their UI is using the same SDK - although it doesn't seem to use Microsoft.CRM.Proxy.dll like us but rather Microsoft.CRM.COMProxy.dll - am I correct? In any case, it'd be very helpful if there was a way to see that kind of info. If anyone can share any info on the subject, I'd much appreciate it. Thanks ...

Using old templates from Publisher 97
