Microsoft Silverlight is legacy browser technology that is being deprecated. Visio Web Access (also called Visio Services) has two display modes: Raster and Silverlight. Visio Web Access will stop displaying in Silverlight mode on SharePoint Online and SharePoint Server 2019. Opening VDW files on Internet Explorer with Silverlight installed has the following impact:



The Visio diagram no longer displays in Silverlight mode.

Use Raster mode. There may be a small loss in fidelity. To improve fidelity, convert the diagram from VDW to VSDX file format by using the Save As command from the File tab in Visio Desktop.

Because the Vwa.VwaControl.getDisplayMode() Method will always return 0, the Vwa.DisplayMode.raster Enumeration and the Vwa.Shape.addOverlay Method will not support adding XAML overlays.

Migrate your XAML overlay to an HTML overlay by using this script.
