Windows 7 - VISIO - Pre MS Stencils

Asked By Dr. on 29-Jun-08 04:20 PM
I have some original pre-Microsoft Visio Stencils and shapes that I would
like to use in MS Visio 2002.  They are from the Windows 95 era -- shapes for
kids, and some other shapes.

Are these old shapes and stencils usable in Microsoft Visio 2002?

You mean the dinosaurs and castles. Yes, you can open them in later versions
of Visio. For performance issues, you should open the stencils and then save
them back to a new stencil in the current format of the version of Visio you
have. I've loaded stencils going back to Visio 1 with no problems.
