Hi! Is it possible to make LibreOffice as the default application for Microsoft Visio file format .vsd and .vsdx in msiexec parameter? I mean something like REGISTER_VSD=1. I found REGISTER_DOC, REGISTER_XLS, REGISTER_PPT parameters in help, but nothink about Visio. It is possible in GUI installer. Thanks! I use LibreOffice_5.2.4_Win_x86.msi

I mean, that Visio is already installed.I need to silently install LO and make DRAW default application to open VSD, VSDX files.

I downloaded some .vsdx test files from Microsoft and they open in LO Draw when clicked on so no configuration was required. There is however no option to save in the .vsd or .vsdx formats.
