Microsoft Visio is available in two installation versions: a retail version that you can install on any compatible computer, and an upgrade version that requires that a qualifying product be installed on the computer when you run the Setup program.

This article lists the products that qualify you to use the upgrade version of Visio. The retail version does not require a qualifying product.

This applies to the Standard and Professional editions of Visio 2002.


If you purchase Microsoft Visio 2000 Standard, Technical, Professional, or Enterprise through a retail outlet or through volume-licensing programs such as Open or Select, and you are legally licensed for one of the following products, you qualify to purchase the upgrade product.

Qualifying product names are listed on the left, and their version numbers are listed on the right in the following table:
