The loss of my access to a PC with Visio and Visio 2000 on it has left
me with .vsd files that I cannot work on, and its beginning to get a

a) is there an open source program that can open these files, and

b) can I use it to work with the files for future drawings.


I assume you use Windows. I did not see that Draw could open vsd files.
You might check Dia (, which has a Windows
version. Dia can open the newer Visio files but I am uncertain of the
older ones.

I think I have used Dia on some old[er] Visio files that I had, but I do not remember which Visio version they were made from.

I know that the 3.5.x line is "advertised" in the "Release info" section to be able to open Visio files. So if you try 3.5.3 and Dia, one should be able to open your Visio files.

Soon, hopefully, LO will open Publisher files and then with Visio, LO will be able to open a file format from all of MS Office "modules" instead of just the "normal" business one like word processing, spreadsheet, and presentations. I saw something about work on a Publisher importing filter being worked on by someone/somewhere.
