Visustin is a Windows program that processes code written for Windows, Mac, Unix, DOS, mainframes and other environments. Run Visustin on the Mac the same way you run other Windows programs.
Visustin does not require any specific programming environment installed on your computer.
Visustin is at its best on a modern, well-equipped PC, but it does run on outdated hardware as well.
You won't need a new PC for Visustin. If your PC is from the 2000s, it can run Visustin. Tested minimum hardware is Pentium 120 MHz with 32 MB RAM and 640x480 monitor. With old PCs RAM is the key limiting factor. 512 MB RAM is good enough.
Visustin setup installs the following files. They are required to run Visustin.
|Installed file||Size||Date||Version||Required for|
|AddFlow5.ocx||382552||07/04/07||126.96.36.199||Print, Save, Editor|
|WinGraphviz.dll||659456||02/03/03||188.8.131.52||(Newer versions are bad)|
WinGraphviz.dll must be v184.108.40.206, not newer. Later versions of other files are usually compatible.
* You may edit this file with Visio.
If you get errors, make sure you have run setup. You can use CheckLib to verify that. CheckLib checks if the required run-time files have been correctly installed on your computer. CheckLib is in your Visustin directory. Double-click CheckLib.exe to run it. If CheckLib finds any problems, try running Visustin setup to install the missing files.
The following system files are required, but not installed by Visustin. You should already have them, unless someone deleted them. Use the version that already exists on your system. Newer versions should be compatible.
Export functionality requires the following applications installed on the same computer as Visustin. Later versions of these applications may not be compatible.
The following files are digitally signed by Aivosto Oy: visustin.exe, visustin.dll, visustin.cab, st6unst.exe, setup.exe, setup1.exe, config.exe, checklib.exe.

Warning. Modified copies (not signed by Aivosto Oy) may not be used. Modifications may be infected with malware. Aivosto is not responsible for any damage or virus infection caused by such an illegal version.
Visustin requires write access to some root directory (C:\, D:\, ..., Z:\). Visustin creates some small temporary files in there during the flowcharting process. This may cause problems if the current user account has no write access to the root. With no write access, Visustin may crash. By default, Visustin uses the root directory on the drive of the working directory. For example, if the working directory at startup is C:\VISUSTIN, Visustin will use C:\.
If the initial root directory is not suitable, Visustin will search for a suitable drive starting with C:\ and proceeding up to Z:\. A suitable drive is a hard disk, a RAM drive, a network drive or a removable drive (such as a flash memory drive) with at least 3 MB of free space. In addition, write access to the root directory is required. There is no option to use a directory other than the root. If there is a problem finding a suitable drive, Visustin will show a warning. If you get a warning, try one of these solutions:
Optimization. If the temporary files are being created on a wrong drive (a slow drive, for example), change Visustin to start in another working directory. Say you installed Visustin on a slow drive in D:\VISUSTIN. Change the initial working directory to your fast drive E:\. You don't necessarily have to change the installation path of Visustin, just the working directory.
