Hi there Currently I want to study a big project and need to see the UML diagrams of the project. My friend suggested me to use Visio, But he didn't know that if it's free? Is there a link to download Visio for VC++.net 2003, So I can see the UML diagrams of the project? -Ehsan-

Visio is a portion of Microsoft Office and is commercial, not freeware.

Visio is a commercial office tool by Microsoft and not free.
There are numerous free UML tools.

So can I integrate those free UML tools with VC++.net 2003?( Could I give a sln file to those tools and they draw the diagram for me? )

OK, But the documentation is about 1500 pages!I like to focus on the "ColladaRT" project, not the "EA" software.

EA User Guide: move to "Code Engineering" -> "Reverse Engineering and Synchronizing" -> "Import C++"/"Import Source Code". Should be similar in the offline docs.
Seriously, you only need to parse the table of contents to find the required information. No need to read the whole thing, learn how to extract the information you need from the available sources. This is an essential skill especially when trying to figure out how a complex piece of software works.
