I am working on a executable with the same function than SW Explorer but a lot faster because using an index. You can download it here and let me know if it works on every configuration.

I recently decided to give SW explorer a try. I am testing its features and have noticed that it never finds any of the files that I search for. I am pretty sure that the reason is that it is searching the wrong directory. But when I change the directory (Options->search->add new folder) I find that there are some "default" directories that keep overriding my new directory.

I know that SW Explorer in SW2011 SP4.0 will allow files to be moved without losing association with other files, but it appears that only one file can be moved at a time. Does anyone know of a way of moving multiple files at once?

Is it possible to add a column to SolidWorks explorer from "Properties" like "Description" in order to search that field? The interface in SolidWorks Explorer is not as maliable as Windows Explorer. You can only show or hide the columns that are already available in the interface (Name, Size, Type, Date Modified, Attributes, Full path).

When I use Pack & Go to copy a drawing and related files, some of the copied files are saved in folders other than the folders I specified in the P&G window. Does anybody else experience this? Along with the drawing, I am taking 2 top level assy's and several sub-assy's related to one of the top level assy's.

I use solidworks explorer. Unfortunately, I noticed when I turn on the program, he's trying to send a hidden message, using my email program.

I'm the drawing manager here at our facility, and I have a solidworks vault user that cannot take ownership of the drawing files in the vault. I've checked everything that I know to check (he's in the right group, checkout folder location set up), and he still can't take ownership. What am I missing?

The top level assembly file is selected when in SW Explorer and all files and drawings are checked to be copied. A new location is selected and the project number is changed using "Select/Replace". All files are then copied and renamed to the new location, however, upon opening the top level assembly of the freshly copied project all files are still referencing their original components even though the copied and renamed files are all present in the new location.

Does anyone know of any kind of software that can run the "where used" to find file references, like you can do in SW Explorer, except A WHOLE LOT faster? I have seen a demo of PDM Enterprise and it does it very quickly because it has an indexed database of the metadata. I don't need nor want PDME.

I am generally searching a network drive, and I thought leaving SW-Exp on all night would let it index the files on that drive. But it didn't seem to work, as it takes just as much time searching for where a part/assembly is used as before. Am I missing a step, or is there some way of forcing SW-Exp to index that drive?

I'm trying to reorganize folders of components and concept parts for delivery to a client. I'm frustrated that I cannot search the "In Folder" column and replace text in the "Save To Folder" column. Unless I am missing something obvious? Saving the entire folder structure doesn't allow me to rename those folders.

So we're currently not working on a PDM (its incoming, but taking its time) and are looking to move some parts around without breaking the links in the respective drawings. On a network drive we have a couple different locations where parts/assemblies are worked on, yet there is a single master directory where all the drawings are kept and worked on. Naturally, we want to move all of the working models/assemblies to a single master location yet prevent the references that the drawings have from

Management last week decided to rename the main folder where all our parts and many assemblies are stored. These are literally thousands of parts, that are used in thousands of assemblies. The change in itself is quite minimal, but has profound effects, as you can imagine.

I have SolidWorks 2016, and want to start using PDM Standard vs Workgroup PDM? I understand that Workgroup PDM will be phasing out by 2018. I am new to PDM.

We maintain an independent library of referenced materials for our designs, things such as specialty nuts & bolts, casters, Pems, etc. We had a designer who got in the habit of keeping his own referenced materials library in a folder on his computer. Now I'm tasked with moving all of his files to our network library. As it stands, it's taking a very long time to select parts one-at-a-time, let SolidWorks Explorer search for components that reference it, then move it.
