  2. Open the project that contains the source code you want to reverse engineer.

  3. In Visual Basic, click the Reverse Engineer UML Model toolbar button UML Reverse Engineer button imageon the Visio UML Add-In toolbar.

  5. In the UML model diagram, drag icons from the tree view onto the drawing page to create a static structure diagram that represents a view of the model.
