I can not find the drawing control in the COM Components tab, as a result it is not possible for me to add the drawing control to a windows form application. How can I solve this issue?

Download Microsoft Visio 2010 Viewer from the link below:

Go to Display Settings tab of the Properties and Settings and then click on Layer Settings tab and click Markup Settings tab.

These occurs firmly because the Visual Studio designer does not support 64-bit ActiveX controls and because the 64-bit version of Visio 2010 only works with the 64-bit version of the Microsoft Office Visio 14.0 drawing control hence the drawing control cannot be initiated. Install the 32-bit version of Visio 2010 on a computer.

To solve this issue, first of all, please install the 32-bit version of Visio 2010 on a computer.  Then add the 32-bit version of the Microsoft Office Visio 14.0 drawing control to the Windows Form application in Visual Studio. Please be sure that all the necessary design changes to the drawing control.

Another thing to do is to move the Visual Studio project to a computer that has the 64-bit version of Visio 2010 installed. The drawing control cannot be seen in the Windows Form application. This is the expected.  Afterwards, reconfigure the project to target the 64-bit platform. For more information about how to configure a project to target platforms, you could then visit the Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) web site.

Use the 64-bit version of the MSBuild.exe tool to build the solution if the AxVisOcx wrapper assembly for the drawing control cannot be created by building the solution. To do this, follow these steps:

 

  1. Click Start, click All Programs, and then click Accessories.
  2. Right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.
  3. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER: cd solution_path

 

To build the solution, type the following command, and then press ENTER: MSBuild_PathMSBuild.exe solution_name.

Lastly, in integrated development environment build a setup projects in the Visual Studio.
