Visio-Solution Publishing Tool-create template category in visio?

Nikolay:
IMHO, WarSetup is a nightmare, honestly :)

Try my tool, it's better. Just uncheck the "Create Visio Addin" option, because you don't need it, then it will create ONLY Visio setup project.
It does support the categories, also has auto-complete...

I've tried to build an online service to do that, not sure if it still works (you could try - ask if anything):

Alternatively, you can use registry settings instead. Without ANY setup (keyword: Spotlight)

Paul Herber:
Thanks, Nikolay, I'll take another look.

Nikolay:
I'm wondering how it's going to be with MSIX...  (note "X" at the end)
How soon are they gonna ditch MSI?

It seems to be almost there...
Yesterday I've downloaded the latest Windows 10 build (that includes MSIX)... Have a plan to check it out sometime soon    :)

Hi Nikolay, the Setup Project section is all disabled. WixToolset is all installed.

Nikolay:
Hi Paul, the second is screen should be disabled, that's okay (those are addin options)... The setup settings are on the last screen:

Could you please share the screenshot if it's not working.
Please mind It's not that I'm against WAR setup, I just find it lacking Visio features... And Visual Studio build integration :)
