Many people have faced the issue where they cannot installing Visio 2016 (dreamspark version) in a laptop that has Office 365 installed. Even I faced this issue where Visio setup didn’t open when I had to install Visio 2016 (the dreamspark version) on my laptop with my Office 365. The solution is to change the compatibility of the Setup (setup.exe).
