Visio 2013 - File BlockSettings

Oddly, I am unable to open a downloaded .vss file. from a well known company.

Okay cool.  

KB:


Uh oh, it's greyed out. Hmm, must be in the registry. 

Still, seems silly, if cannot open stencils by default. Are they so malicious?

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\Visio


HKEY_CURRENT_USER?

Just save to Power Point file or jpeg, I guess.
