  If you are using Netscape, select Options at the top of the screen. From 
there choose General Preferences, then Helpers. The Helpers screen 
allows you to define file extensions and relate them to programs which 
will run them. The file extensions for Visio seem to be vsd, vss and 
vst. You will have to determine the exact path name which executes the 
Viso start up on your pc and enter that in the box below Launch the 
Application (make sure that box is checked.)
