Provide Vw version used in 'Batch Conversion Log'

Question

So that I don't lose access to my older Vw files, about every other Vw version update I have to go through all my old Vw files and batch convert everything to the newest version. (Hoping that the conversion doesn't break the file... but past experience tells me most likely something will be broken).

It would make things slightly easier if the 'Batch Conversion Log' file stated which Vw version was used for the conversion.

Right now I have to go through each Vw file to see what version it is. ("Let's see, will it open in Vw2012 — nope, Vw2013 — nope, Vw2014 — BINGO!").

A sample 'Batch Conversion Log' file says:

Batch Conversion Started at:	6/26/14  2:41:04 PM

Source Folder:      Macintosh HD:WORK:DETAILS:_WALLTYPES:
Destination Folder: Convert in Place
 

It would be very helpful if it said something like:

Vectorworks 2014
Batch Conversion Started at:	6/26/14  2:41:04 PM

Source Folder:      Macintosh HD:WORK:DETAILS:_WALLTYPES:
Destination Folder: Convert in Place
 

It would also be helpful if the .TXT file type extension were set for the 'Batch Conversion Log' file. That way the OS knows which software to open it with. I double-clicked on one and it incorrectly opened in QGIS; I fixed this by changing the 'Open with..' default application setting.
