Actually I have found some Visio5 docs which do open in MSVisio2k. However,
on my longer Visio5 flowcharts I received the following error in MSVisio2k
(technical) on Windows2k:
[exclamation point in triangle]
Visio32.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows. You will
need to restart the program.
An error log is being created.
If I first import the Visio5 document into Visio Visio2k then save it and
open it from MS Visio2k I have no problems. Good thing I have two computers.
