Batch Custom Properties Program

Here is a stand-alone application to display and edit the custom properties and configuration custom properties of a list of files.

As of version 0.25, it can run in 2 modes: Fast and Slow

 

The Fast mode uses SolidWorks Document Manager library to avoid opening each files and speeding up the process.

If you don’t have one yet, follow this link to request your SwDocManager license key (it's free):

Then place it in the text file that will be created in the same folder as the program.

 

The Slow mode uses SolidWorks to open each files to get or set the custom properties.

It's more like a test mode, to see how the application works while waiting for the SwDocManager license key.

It should work like the Fast mode, albeit with all the issues of opening files with SolidWorks.
