Let me start to say that I really really do not like PDM add-ins. One of the things I do not like is the fact that the add-in code is being parsed at each user's action... I created this simple .EXE tool that can be triggered using Dispatch. Yes... I know... Dispatch is an add-in; it's an out-of-the-box add-in. It's optimized and supported by DS R&D.
This is an as-is application. No support is offered.
pdmGetURL.exe is a tool to get the URL of a file in a PDM Professional vault. This application requires SOLIDWORKS Enterprise PDM 2014 or higher.
Usage: pdmGetURL arguments
Name of the vault, enclosed between double quotes if it contains spaces.
Full path of the file in the vault, enclosed between double quotes.
