On an App-V 4.5 client that is running a sequenced (virtualized) version of Microsoft Visio 2003, when attempting to open a Visio document from a SharePoint site by clicking the drop-down and selecting "Edit in Microsoft Office Visio" it may fail with the following error:
The document could not be opened for editing. A Windows SharePoint Services compatible application could not be found to edit the document.
To resolve this issue complete the following steps:
1. On the local computer, install Windows SharePoint Services Support from the Office installation media. It is listed under Office Tools. In my testing, both the version from Office 2007 media and Office 2003 media worked.
2. Add the following registry keys to the local machine:
@="\"C:\Program Files\Softricity\SoftGrid for Windows Desktops\sfttray.exe\"
/launch \"Microsoft Visio 2003 1.0""
Note that in this example "Microsoft Visio 2003 1.0" is the name of the package used in this example. You will need to use the name of the package in each specific case.
Alternatively, you could add a short-cut to IE into the Visio package and launch the SharePoint site from IE that has been launched within the virtual environment.
