On an App-V 4.5 client that is running a sequenced (virtualized) version of Microsoft Visio 2003, when attempting to open a Visio document from a SharePoint site by clicking the drop-down and selecting "Edit in Microsoft Office Visio" it may fail with the following: The document could not be opened for editing. A Windows SharePoint Services compatible application could not be found to edit the document. To resolve: 1. Install Windows SharePoint Services Support from the Office installation media.  It is listed under Office Tools. 2. Add following registry keys:

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.vsd] <br />@="Visio.Drawing.11" <br />"Content Type"="application/vnd.visio" <br />"SoftGridSource"="{9C0394B8-E606-49C1-BF51-3DB13E127A77}" <p></p> <p>[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App <br />Paths\visio.exe] <br />@="\"C:\Program Files\Softricity\SoftGrid for Windows Desktops\sfttray.exe\" <br />/launch \"Microsoft Visio 2003 1.0"" <br />"UseUrl"="1" <br />"SaveUrl"="1"

Alternatively, you could add a short-cut to IE into the Visio package and launch the SharePoint site from IE that has been launched within the virtual environment.
