    version compatibility for properties.txt file?

    Nathan Rollins

      Hi all,

       

      I had a "The properties.txt file cannot be located at the specified location... The SolidWorks software will use the properties.txt file located at <install_dir>\lang\...) message start to pop up in my 2013 install when making configs of an assembly.  So I read the many threads regarding this issue and I think I am all set (thanks to Charley Leonard for posting the "as shipped" version of the file)

       

      My question is regarding multiple versions installed.  I like to keep all of my CAD configuration / settings files (hardware libraries, start parts, drawing formats, system colors settings, etc.) in a Dropbox folder for safe keeping and migration purposes.  I decided to put my properties.txt file there as well...  Will this be an issue with multiple versions of swx?  Currently I run 2012,13 and 14 - and I know 15 is coming soon enough for me... (can't wait)

       

      It seems like a pretty simple text file - I cannot imagine why it would mind being read by multiple versions...

       

      Any thoughts on this?
