You will see that Class Designer comes with all versions except the Express editions. If you have Standard or Professional you can use them instead of getting VSTS.
You might even have Microsoft Office Visio installed which can make UML diagrams.
I have Visual Stduio Pro , but i don't need only the class diagram, i need also for example the deployment diagram.
I need something to be integrated with Visual Studio & have nice UI like the VSTS has.
Dia is one of the crappiest and buggy tools I've ever used.
It doesn't seem that bad to me...
But you can't really complain about a tool that you haven't paid for. Freeware/open source can get away with more bugs than commercial software. A good free application may actually be a mediocre/poor shareware/commercial application (you expect higher quality
if you pay).
