CAFM/ Space Management using: Visio/ Visio Services/ SharePoint 2010?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 20, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

We accomplish Space accounting using  Autocad and Archibus to calculate square feet on a facilities floor plan. We would like to have that ability to use Autocad drawings imported into Visio and use Visio services to calculate square footage information and publish the smart drawings on the web using Sharepoint.

Is there anyone that has accomplished this type of work using the Visio/ SharePoint?  Any help is appreciated.

Visio Services on Sharepoint error

Hello I have seen other posts regarding this problem but no real solution other than using an RTM version of Visio. When I publish Visio drawings (.vdw) to our Sharepoint 2010 server, I get the following error Visio Services was unable to load this diagram because it was published with an older version of Visio. To resolve this issue, republish this diagram with an updated version of Visio. However my version is 14.0.476.1000 (32bit) which is newer than those mentioned in the other posts. The document makes it to the server just fine and can be opened in Visio from the server but when trying to view on Sharepoint, the error above is returned. Can someone please help? Thanks Thanks

publishing visio 2007 diagrams to sharepoint 2010


Hi dear members !

I have such issue : customer wants to publish Visio 2007 diagrams (vsd files) to sharepoint 2010 . This is only allowed by Visio 2010 . Issue is to show diagrams in browser so user without Visio can look at them .

2010 Visio Services Data Auto Refresh Issue


I have published vdw diagram in Sharepoint 2010 Shared Documents. The diagram data is linked to SQL database.

When I view the diagram in the browser, unless I click dedicated "Refresh" button on the top left at the sharepoint page, data is not updating.

I have changed all the SP 2010 Global settings to minimal value = 0 (as per previous post called 2010 Visio Services Data Refresh Issue).

Still you need to click dedicated "Refresh" button on the top left at the sharepoint page in order to see updated data.

In the article called "Visio Services for SharePoint 2010" is stated that new Visio service supports AUTOMATIC REFRESH.

Am I missing something? Is it possible to have a visio diagram with AUTOMATIC REFRESH published in SharePoint 2010?

I can do some workarounds like publishing in web parts page that has auto pooling, but my understanding was that the Visio diagram refresh is event based on data change only - means if data do not change 10 minutes there will be no calls?

I need a detailed instruction on how to upgrade From Upgrading from Windows SharePoint Services 2.0  (SBS 2003 ) to SharePoint Foundation 2010.

Background of the case:

I have all my databases (STS-database and STS_Config) saved but, I forgot to save my Virtual Site )Companyweb site) and I mistakenly re-installed IIS on the SBS 2003, hence  I lost the companyweb site. Is this an issue to migrate to Sharepoint foundation 2010. The Sharepoint foundation 2010 is running on a Microsoft HyperV Server 2008 R2
Also, I have created a Virtual 2003 SRV ENT with Sharepoint Services 3.0 running on it. I also have attached my Databases STS_Database and STS_Config)... how do I get it working like a regular website. I have modified the CNAME record to reflect the new server... http://companyweb - it take me to the new site but it loads a blank page. I did create a new CompanyWeb Virtual site on the VHD 2003 server.
Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your prompt response. Nelson
