Is there a macro to set the option "automatic update of bom" during a file version upgrade to correct SPR#58157?

Hi there,

the File Version Upgrade Tool 2017 (2016?) of Solidworks PDM removed the option "automatic update of bom" of all our assemblies. (SPR#581517)

Now, that there is the possibility since 2016 to start macros during a file version upgrade (S-070409), it should be possible to add this option during the next file version upgrade to 2018.

S-070619 shows an example of a dll including source code. Unfortunately I am not experienced programming in C language. I think it would just be one line to change in this macro. Does anyone already have a solution for this problem?
