Replace All Part References with a Specific Configuration

I am trying to use SolidWorks Explorer to replace a part throughout all of my assemblies. The replacement part must be in a specific configuration. I have saved my replacement part with the desired configuration active. However, after making the replacement, the new part remains in its first configuration, not the configuration I want to use.

 

I know it's possible to make a configuration-specific replacement directly in a SolidWorks assembly, but in this situation, there are too many assemblies and part references to update everything with this method. (I am using SW 2016).
