I just started working for a new employer that makes heavy use of Visio. I need to manage some existing documents, and one change that's been requested of me is that I make some minor changes to an embedded Visio object on the document.
When I double click on the object, I get an error message that states
The server application, source file, or item cannot be found.
Make sure the application is properly installed, and that it has not been deleted, moved, renamed, or blocked by policy.
Regarding environment, I'm using 64-bit Windows 10 Pro and all of these install attempts are with 64-bit versions. Originally, I had Office 2016 Pro installed, as well as Visio 2016. I first installed Office, then Visio. These were separate installs and from my experience, I haven't found an integrated Office installation with Word/Excel/Access/etc. and Visio.
After multiple attempts with Office 2016/Visio 2016 failed and attempting after repairing both installs, I uninstalled both, installed Office 365 (downloaded from portal.office.com) and then re-installed Visio 2016. Again, this failed, even after repairing both installs.
To be clear, the object is certainly a Visio embedded object. My co-worker can double-click on these objects on his machine and modify them within Word. If he right-clicks on the object, he can see details stating it's a Visio object. When I right-click on the object, I see an "Unknown object..." menu option.
What might I be doing wrong in setting up Office with Visio?
FYI, I was given access to Office 365, and I also have an MSDN account. I can install Office 2016 or use the Office 365 install-- my employer doesn't have a preference, so long as I can do my job and change embedded Visio objects within Office documents. Any clue what's going on and how to fix it, or how to further diagnose the problem?
Here are the current version details for these installed applications.
Word 2016: Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus, version 1807 (Build 10325.20082 Click-to-Run)
Visio 2016: Microsoft Visio Professional 2016, version 1807 (Build 10325.20082 Click-to-Run)
