Visustin is a robust flow chart generator that processes all types of source code under all conditions. Problems you might encounter are usually related to either the system configuration or to the source code at hand.

Some users in Japan and South Korea have reported crashes with flow charts including the loop symbol (violet hexagon). To determine if this error happens on your PC open the Samples menu. Check out Fortran sample 2, Pascal sample 3 and 6, Perl sample 2. If these samples crash but others don't, you are hit by this error.

That's not a small file. You may have run out of memory. Read about large charts.
If saving fails, but viewing the chart in Visustin is possible, you may have exceeded the capabilities of the file format. Try saving in another format, such as PDF.
Save it as PDF. Some viewers and applications have limited capabilities concerning very large images, such as ones exceeding 65535 pixels in width or height. Trying another viewer or file format may help. PDF is the most robust format.
There is a limit to what one can reasonably fit a one sheet of paper. Print on more sheets.
Visustin is working near the limits of your PC. Flashing may appear when Visustin has saved memory to stay running. It's not a bug, it's a feature!
You are running low on memory. Visustin uses low-color zooming to keep running with limited RAM. This may produce a rasterized black & white image or unexpected colors. This effect appears when there is not enough physical RAM available. Close other programs to free some memory or add RAM into your system. You can also zoom again as the operating system may have freed up some RAM meanwhile.
Your display is running in a low color mode. Right-click the Desktop, select Properties, Settings and select a better color mode such as 32-bit True Colors.
Symptoms: You can't view the help file. You're seeing an empty page, 'Action canceled' or 'The page cannot be displayed'. The reason for this is that your Windows blocks downloaded help files.
Solution: You need to unblock the help file. Right-click visustin.chm and select Properties. Press Unblock.
Instead of the local help file, you can also use the online help, which has the same content.
If Visustin setup fails on your computer, you can by-pass the installer by following these steps.
