What editions have Software and database modelling template in Visio 2010?

Hello team,

Attached are the pictures of my visio 2010 installation and I am not able to find Software and database template.

What editions of Visio 2010 has support of software and database?

When I go to change features in install wizard, I do not see Software and database.

According to the link "Can't find the database modeling features?", Visio Professional and Premium editions support the reverse engineering features for the Database Model Diagram template, which is included in "Software and Database" template categories.
So "Software and Database" template categories still exist in Visio Professional and Premium 2010.

On your computer, maybe there is something wrong with Visio installation that caused the template category could not be available.
It is recommended that you repair Visio from Control Panel to check this issue.

As a workaround, I suggest you locate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\Visio Content\1033, make sure the templates you need are included in this folder 1033, such as Database Model Diagram template ( DBMODL_U.VST or DBMODL_M.VST).
Then go to File > Options > Advanced > File Locations (Scroll to bottom) > Specify the path above in the “Templates” field.
Restart Visio, check whether the tempaltes listed on "New" interface.

I followed the steps as you suggested, however I am not seeing "Software and Database modelling" under template categories. I expect to see Software and Database modelling as top level template category and several UML or database modelling diagrams as sub categories showing up later on.

Thanks for your reply.

Was the Repair for Visio from Control Panel helpful?

If DBMODL_U.VST or DBMODL_M.VST could not be shown on "New" interface, please set back to blank for "Templates" field.

But please try to open DBMODL_U.VST and DBMODL_M.VST, check whether these 2 files are damaged.
In addition, the recently opened template files will be displayed as "Recently Used Templates".
