Visio Viewer 2016 does not open from SharePoint


When a SharePoint document library is set to open in client application and the full Visio client is not installed, when the Visio document is clicked on you may receive a message to search the store for applications that support ms-visio



Instead of clicking on the document link pick to "view in browser" or install the full Visio client application.

If SharePoint Online is being used, then when the new list experience option is turned on, Visio documents will always open in the web viewer first.
