Relinking Reference files with version upgrade - any hacks?!

I usually copy the Reference files as they are into a "VW Version before" Subfolder.

Batch Convert the original References in place to VW Version current files.


So I can open the migrated master file in VW Version current and the References

are still working.


Of course, if you want to open the previous master file version, you need to

relocate your References again though. But usually I did not have so much

problems with the newer VW version that I would need to go back.


An alternative is to rename References according to VW Versions.

Needs a single reloading References for each VW upgrade.

But you can still open your previous VW file version's References without issues.


Or you could copy the whole file related parts of your project folder with each

VW upgrade and run batch convert for all VW files including all subfolders.



So likely not the answer you hoped for and not very comfortable.

But I think I would not have a better idea how to organize these upgrades

or what VW should make better (?)
