      Hi there,

      I have exactly the same problem with my CE 7.1 Trial.

      Did you find out how to solve it by now? I tried the other link but am unsure on how o exactly follow the solution there, as in the 7.1 there is no visual admin anymore and the nwa is quite different to it.

      So any great is greatly appreciated.

      Thanks and kind regards,

    Hi I've copied the following section from the VC 6 installation manual.

    It worked from me, maybe it works for you:

    4 Preparing the Visual Composer Client


    Visual Composer Storyboard, operating on the Visual Composer server, is the design

    environment in which you create your portal content. It functions as a thin-client application

    that can be accessed from the Internet Explorer web browser of any machine with network

    access to the Visual Composer server. See the Visual Composer User Guide for instructions

    about logging on to Visual Composer Storyboard from a client machine.

    In order to log on to and work with Visual Composer Storyboard, be sure that your Visual

    Composer client machine meets the following software requirements:

    • Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1or higher

    • Microsoft XML Parser 4.0

    • Adobe SVG Viewer 3.0

    Download MS XML parser 4:

    Download SVG from

    Best regards, Marcel.
