Along with free trials of Office 2010 RTM and SharePoint Server 2010 RTM, Microsoft is also offering customers the chance to test drive the latest iteration of Visio before making any decisions related to purchasing the product. The evaluation version of Visio Premium 2010 RTM is now up for grabs from the Redmond company, free of charge. The software giant is offering both the 32-bit and the 64-bit flavors of Visio, along with the product key designed to activate the two evaluation editions. The company set up a special Visio Premium 2010 download page where customers can get the RTM bits.
“Microsoft Visio Premium 2010 takes diagramming to a bold new level with dynamic, data-driven visualization tools and templates, powerful process-management features, and advanced sharing capabilities through the Web. Bring the big-picture and real-time data from multiple sources, including Microsoft Excel 2010 and Microsoft SQL Server, together in one powerful diagram with vibrant graphics such as icons, colors, and data bars. Manage your processes with sub processes and rules and logic validation to ensure accuracy and consistency across the organization. Using Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010, you can create SharePoint workflows and export them for execution and real-time monitoring,” the software giant stated.
The additional Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010 free downloads are also bound to come in handy. For example, Visio 2010 is designed to connect extremely close with SharePoint Server 2010. In this context, testing the full capabilities and features of Visio Service requires customers to also have deployed SharePoint Server 2010, namely the Enterprise CAL Edition. Fortunately enough, trail versions of both releases are available for download from Microsoft.
Microsoft is currently offering Visio RTM in a variety of languages, including: Arabic, Brazilian, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish, and Ukrainian. Still, only select language versions of the Visio 2010 trial release are offered for download.
