How to bulk update solidworks version for files

For our add-in we are reaching a point where we have a considerable amount of example. We would like to make these available for each version of Solidworks we support. For now the solution is to save in the oldest version we support (2015) and then opening in each supported version and  save the file in order to update it. However, this is becoming a bit time consuming and this will only get worse as we add examples and Solidworks versions.


Is there a way to automate this process? I.e. Given a list of part/assembly files, open each in solidworks 2016 ,2017, 2018, 2019 and save an updated and renamed version. Note that the files might have an associated Flow project that also needs updating


Is it maybe something the document manager api can handle?
