Note
The Visio Viewer 2002 allows users without Visio to view Visio files. The download is an IExpress package that you need to extract the msi from (vviewer.exe /q /c /t:c:\temp).

If you try to run the MSI with just '/qb', you will get an error message that the EULA has to be accepted.

The command line parameter "ACCEPTEULA=1" is required.

When installing Visio Viewer it doesn't ask where to install, just defaults to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Visio Viewer.

Fine for most people, but our Company standards need it installed to C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Office\Visio Viewer, so had to create a transform. Changes required as follows:

Directory Table
1. Added a new row with
Directory = Microsoft
Directory_Parent = ProgramFilesFolder
DefaultDir = MICROS~1|Microsoft
2. Changed the row Directory=MicrosoftOffice to
Directory_Parent=Microsoft
DefaultDir = OFFICE|Office
Property Table
1. Changed the property Viewer to
C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Office\Visio Viewer2. Changed the property MicrosoftOffice to
C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Office3. Changed the property GDIPlusFolder... to
C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Office\Visio Viewer

You can modify the MSI directly to add the following Properties:

ACCEPTEULA=1
ASSOCIATE=1

The Associate is required if you want the viewer to always be selected for viewing Visio docs. Without it, it will display the first doc you click on but all docs after this will want the full version of Visio instead of the viewer.
