What happens to Visio when I replace my Office trial version with a full version?

I have a trial version of Office. I purchased Visio and loaded it and now it is in the boot path of the trial version. If I load a new version of Office will it erase the Visio application?

    How to run multiple versions of Visio

    possibly whenever you start one visio version or the other, you will have to wait for it to do a bunch of registry gyrations if the current version is different from the last-run version.

    Hello, Visio is not included with Office installation.  It should not affect your visio installation when you install a new office product.  Besides, if you buy office program with a license that matches your installation, you do not have to uninstall your previous office program.  It is just a matter of entering the license and you should be able to use same installation.

    Loading a new version of Office should not affect Visio. Though Visio shares an installation path (and some common dlls) with Office, its license is managed separately.
