when searching for "shapes" in Visio I get this error:

"Visio Web Shapes - Web Server Error - Try Your Search Again Later".

Certain shapes not accessible as a result.  Does anyone know what Internet site or address it is searching for new shapes?

I am using Microsoft Office Visio Standard 2003 (11.3216.6568).

Much appreciated

Nevermind! Search for Shapes feature in Visio to search on the Internet is discontinued by M$.  >:(

To remove the error, disable online shape search:
Start Visio
Click 'Tools' > 'Options'
In the 'Options' dialog, click the 'Shape Search' tab
Uncheck 'The Internet'
This will also automatically uncheck the 'Visio Web Shapes' item.
Click 'OK'

Now to find the best place to download shapes..
