The Visio 2021 application is one of the software that is widely used in making diagrams or data visualization. Visio 2021 is a Microsoft Office product, which of course must be made into a full version if you want to continue using it, namely by activating Visio 2021.
Even though Visio 2021 is a Microsoft Office product, this application is not included in the Office installation package like Word, Excel, and PPT. So, even though you have installed Office 2021, Visio 2021 will not be installed too.
If you want to use Visio 2021, then you have to install the application separately. Because the installation process is separate, the activation process to make it a full version must also be done independently. Otherwise, you will not be able to continue using Visio 2021 applications, even if you have activated Office 2021. Because when Office 2021 is activated, only Word, Excel, and PPT are active, while Visio is not activated.

Solution If Activation Fails and Errors
If you have followed the activation steps correctly and thoroughly but it doesn’t work and instead there is an error, other factors may be the cause. Error descriptions that sometimes appear on failed activations are that Office doesn’t support it.
Information Office not supported usually appears when activation using CMD or a batch file fails. If you encounter this error description, it doesn’t mean that your Visio 2021 application cannot be activated, but rather that there are other things that prevent the activation from running as it should, so it fails.
Apart from that, sometimes an error appears that says CScript Error: Windows Script Host access is disabled on this machine, Contact your administrator for details. The error description usually appears when acting using the failed KMS application.
The cause that most often causes an error that Office does not support or Windows Script Host is disabled is because the Smadav application blocks Windows Script Host. In fact, Windows Script Host is really needed when activating using CMD, batch files, or KMS applications.
So, if your laptop has the Smadav application, then this application is definitely the cause. The solution is, you have to allow Windows Script Host on the Smadav application. For more details, please follow the guide in the tutorial on how to allow Windows Script Host on Smadav.
After you have finished allowing Windows Script Host on Smadav, please repeat the activation process as previously done. Because Windows Script Host has been allowed, now activation can run smoothly and can be successful.
Check Visio 2021 Is Active or Not
After you activate and the statement is successful, there’s nothing wrong with checking again. This check is to ensure that your Visio 2021 is actually active or not.
To check the activation status, please just open the Visio 2021 application that has been activated. After the Visio 2021 application opens, please click the File menu, then click Account.
