isn' it possible to import from Visio 2002?

I created the file under Visio 2002 as ".vdx"-format but ARIS Express wouldn't import the file. It showed me an error-message.

no, the Visio 2002 format is not valid. It actually differs from the 2006/2007 format, even if they use the same suffix.

If you want to import a Visio VDX file into Express, you need to use certain Visio chart types in Visio 2006/2007.

Please have a look at this post, where the available mappings are described:
