Visio requiring activation on first run


I used installshield to create an MST file for the MS visio MSI. Pretty much I just entered our volume license key and took all the defaults. When I distribute the file it installs fine, but when it is run the first time it asks the user to register the product. Is this normal with a volume license key for Visio pro 2003? Is there a way around it?

If you use the Enterprise Volume Key you need to use the Enterprise CD version to go along with that. Just using the Enterprise Volume Key will not stop a consumer version from requiring activation.

that's what I thought, thanks.
