Microsoft Visio has Stopped Working

Posted by Russell Wright on August 8, 2011

I’ve been having some issues with Visio 2010 throwing an error (Microsoft Visio has stopped working) when I’m closing it down and tracked it back (with the help of others) to potentially the "Send to Bluetooth" add-in.  I’ve since disabled it using this procedure.


Under the File menu (backstage), select Options.  Click on Add-Ins.  Click on Manage Visio Add-ins and click the Go button.


Uncheck Send to Bluetooth and click OK.


It should show up in the Inactive Application Add-ins.  Check it out and see if you still get the error.
