You need to first read up on the use of the OptionState marker in the config.xml.

You can find some information at :


Assuming this is Visio Pro 2007 we are talking about, then once you know the OptionID for the feature you wish to remove, you can edit the config.xml which is found in the VisPro.WW folder and uncomment the following line

<!-- <OptionState Id="OptionID" State="absent" Children="force" /> -->

and replace OptionID with the actual option id you wish to remove, so for example
to remove the proofing tools, the line would be amended to become

<OptionState Id="ProofingParent" State="absent" Children="force" />

The challenge, I guess, is to work out the OptionID(s) for the feature(s) you wish to remove.

Thx for the help spartacus.
I figured out the the best way to solve this was to combine the config.xml file with a msp file-since i never
actually figured out hoe to disable the proofing tool feature in the config.xml file
