This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
SYMPTOMS
The Unified Modeling Language (UML) Reverse Engineering solution from Visio 2002 and Visio 2000 cannot be simultaneously used on the same computer.

The UML Reverse Engineering add-in from Microsoft Visual Basic 6 or Microsoft Visual C++ 6 may not work properly if both the Visio 2000 and Visio 2002 UML add-ins are enabled within Visual Studio.
RESOLUTION
If you want to work with the UML Solutions from both Visio 2002 and 2000, install Microsoft Visio 2002 to a separate or new program folder.

If you choose to install Microsoft Visio 2002 in the same program folder as Visio 2000, use one of following methods as appropriate, to work around this problem.
