How to Upgrade Microsoft Visio 2003 to 2007

Microsoft Visio provides an arsenal of tools for data-driven illustration, diagramming, and collaboration that can be applied to all kinds of businesses. It's part of Microsoft Office, and like other Office applications, Microsoft releases a new version of Visio every few years. If you have experienced Visio 2003 and are anxious to upgrade to Visio 2007 or 2010, you may do so by purchasing the upgrade version of Visio that you want, rather than paying for a complete version.


Purchase an Upgrade copy of Visio 2007 Standard or Professional either on a retail web site like Amazon, or at your local computer or electronics store. Comparison sites like Pricegrabber are useful for finding the lowest price.

Insert the Visio 2007 upgrade CD-ROM into the optical drive on your PC. If it does not start automatically, open "My Computer," right-click on your optical drive, and choose "Run."

Follow the prompts as they are displayed by the installation program. For example, you need to decide if you want Visio 2007 to replace Visio 2003 or if you prefer to keep your earlier version installed.

Enter your Visio 2007 product key when prompted to validate your software, or call Microsoft's toll-free validation line at 866-432-3012. Reboot your PC when installation is finished.

Click "Start," then "Control Panel," then "System and Security," then "Windows Update" and make sure you have Automatic Updates enabled.
