Meraki Visio Stencil File Issues

I'm trying to download some Visio stencils for Meraki equipment.

I found the following link in the product collateral database but I cannot seem to open the file.

https://meraki.cisco.com/product-collateral/cisco-meraki-visio-stencils/?file

It downloads as a zip file but I cannot extract it with windows or with 7zip. I also tried changing the extension to .vss in case it was mislabelled but that also doesn't open.

Would love to know if anyone else is having the same problem, or if there's another place to get visio stencils from (especially for the newer MX and MR models)

Hello,

 

about https://meraki.cisco.com/product-collateral/cisco-meraki-visio-stencils/?file

This file contains an additional NewLine at the beginning of the file. After removing it (so that "PZ" are the first 2 characters in the file), I was able to open it.

 

Sadly I can't upload vss, zip or 7z files here =(

Hi!

 

I believe our most up-to-date Visio stencils are here: https://www.cisco.com/c/dam/assets/prod/visio/visio/security-cisco-meraki.zip. Unfortunately, they haven't been updated since December 2019. 

 

I have the same problem when I try to download from the link you provided (https://meraki.cisco.com/product-collateral/cisco-meraki-visio-stencils/?file ) - I'll let the team know about that!

 

Cheers!

@Greenberet Thank you, you're 100% right.
I opened it up in Notepad++, removed the new line from the top and now the zip opens fine.

Unfortunately it actually has less shapes than the file found on the Cisco.com website but that's another issue in of itself.

@Jotishthe links are fine, but try to open the file in the second link

@Greenberet: Works fine for me. Please see the screenshots below.
