     Hi Jim,

    I have sent you a link from where you can download a recent build of NORMA for VS2017.

    Hope this helps.

    Jim,

    As I mentioned in my email, I suggest that you re-orient by going through the NORMA Tutorials that you can download from the library.

    Since you have successfully installed NORMA, you should proceed as follows :

    Start Visual Studio.

    Start NORMA by:   File>New>File then scroll down to  "Object Role Modeling File" and click on it.

    Right click on the drawing surface and choose  ORM Tool windows> ORM Fact Editor.

    Enter a new fact type into the fact editor such as Student(.nr) lives at Address(.nr) - Then press Ctrl Enter and you fact type will appear on  the drawing surface.

    Right click on one of the role boxes and choose a uniqueness constraint.

    Right click on the drawing surface and choose  ORM Tool windows> ORM Verbalization Browser.
    Then, when you click on one of the items on the drawing surface, you will see the verbalization such as:

    Student lives at Address.
    Each Student lives at at most one Address.
    It is possible that more than one Student lives at the same Address.

    Play around with the constraints and the verbalization with change.

    Hope this helps

    Ken

    Got NORMA working in Visual Studio 2008 -- after I installed the right portions of VS2008!

     Awesome!

    By "it" I assume that you mean "NORMA for Visual Studio 2008?
