File extension .VSDX
VSDX is a vector drawing file format used by Microsoft Visio, previously called Visio Drawing, to store and distribute diagrams and other drawings. The .vsdx file extension is based on Microsoft's Open XML standards, which makes it easier to share without requiring additional applications or special software. It typically contains images, master page elements, themes, data graphics, shapes, text, layers, hyperlinks, geometry and media files.
VSDX files are easily shared between Visio 2013 and above. Third-party software such as LibreOffice Draw and CorelDraw can also open VSDX files. Previous versions of Visio use a different file format with the extensions of .vdw (.vsd) and .vsdx (.vsdm), though users can save the original format as new Visio 2013 file.
File Formats and Versions
The .vsdx file format is based on Office Open XML and uses ZIP compression algorithms to store a collection of associated files and folders in a single container. Related file formats include .vss (Visio Stencil), .vst (Visio Template), .vsx (Visio Add-in), .vssx (Visio Stencil) and .vtx (Visio XML Drawing). Some similar file types are .odg, .drw, .sxd and .cdr, to list a few examples.

After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .VSDX) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .VSDX extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .VSDX file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .VSDX extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .VSDX extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .VSDX file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .VSDX file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .VSDX file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .VSDX file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .VSDX file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
