Visio Viewer is freely available from Microsoft. If your co-workers and customers don't have Visio installed, they can install the viewer, then view and interact with Visio drawings that you send them in a browser or in Outlook. If they have Outlook 2007, then they may already have the viewer installed, because Outlook installs the Visio 2007 viewer by default.

With the Visio Viewer, they can pan and zoom, switch pages, view Shape Data (Custom Properties), turn layers on and off, and view or hide annotations.

Visio users can freely distribute Visio drawings and diagrams to team members, partners, customers, or others, even if the recipients do not have Visio installed on their computers. Internet Explorer also allows for printing, although this is limited to the portion of the drawing displayed.

Visio Viewer enables users to discover the advantages of using Visio drawings, charts, and illustrations in a Web-based environment. The Visio 2010 (Beta) Viewer is particularly useful for teams that need to collaborate from different locations.

Viewing Visio drawings is as simple as double-clicking the drawing (files with the .VSD, .VSS, .VST, .VDX, .VSX, or .VTX extension) in Windows File Explorer. Internet Explorer will open, and the Visio 2010 (Beta) Viewer will render the drawing in the browser window. You can then pan and zoom in the drawing window by using toolbar buttons, keyboard shortcuts, or menu items in the right-click menu.

Also, you can see properties on any shape by opening the Properties and Settings dialog box and then selecting a shape. Some rendering and display settings are available in the Display Settings tab of the Properties and Settings dialog box. Additionally, drawing-layer visibility and colors can be set in the Layer Settings tab, and annotation visibility and colors can be set in the Markup Settings tab.

Note:
Windows XP or later operating system is required for Ink support. Objects created with the Ink tool in Visio will not display on Windows 2000.

The Visio Viewer will allow users to view Visio drawings and diagrams (created with Visio 5.0, 2000, 2002, 2003 or 2007) inside their Internet Explorer version 5.0 or newer Web browser.

Microsoft Office Visio Viewer 2007 Service Pack 1 delivers important customer-requested stability and performance improvements, while incorporating further enhancements to user security. This service pack also includes all of the updates released for Office Visio Viewer 2007 prior to December of 2007.

Notes
* Both Visio Binary (.VSD) and XML (.VDX) files are supported.
* The Visio 2007 Viewer is implemented as an ActiveX control that loads and renders Visio drawings inside Internet Explorer.
* Windows XP or later operating system is required for Ink support. Objects created with the Ink tool in Visio will not display on Windows 2000.

Requirements:
* Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) 5.0 or later

There is another reason to create a custom viewer app: you already have Visio installed on your machine, but you want to check how your drawings appear in the Visio viewer.

Yes, the problem of coexistence of Visio (the app) and Visio (the viewer) can be problematic for a number of reasons:
* Opening a Visio file in the browser with the 2003 and 2007 viewer still presents you with the problem of annoying security warnings popping up every time you open a file
* (There are browser settings to turn this off, Advanced / Security, Check : Allow active content to run in files on My Computer)
* With the Visio viewer 2003, coexistence only works if you install the viewer after you install the Visio application.
* With the Visio 2007 viewer, coexistence doesn't seem to work at all. The Visio application will always take ownership of your Visio files, so you can't (easily) view and check your files with the viewer at all.
* (I tried doing a file association with C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\VVIEWER.DLL, but it didn't work)
