Start Search – Goneski

December 22nd, 2009

‘Twas the night after my EPDM 2010 upgrade and all through my house
not a peripheral was stirring not even my Logitech High Performance Laser mouse.

When I clicked upon my start menu what didn’t appear?
‘Twasn’t my EPDM Search button oh how the end seemed near!

I picked up the phone, so lively and quick
technical support I called -the loss of this function made me sick.

I banged my head and was making a frown
when the sad new that it was permanently gone came down.

When what to my wondering eyes should appear
but Engineering Data Specialist Man and eight tiny reindeer!

A bundle of batch files he had flung on his back
He looked like a genius opening his pack.

He spoke not a word and went straight to his work
and created this batch file and put it in the Taskbar with a jerk.


He sprang to his ’98 Escort reminding his team to not be late
and I heard his curse softly as his keys fell into the sewer grate.

But I heard him exclaim as he walked down the culdesac
“Turn in an enhancement request, maybe they will bring it back!”

    If you have more than one vault, you’ll want to use the /V switch so it will go directly to the proper vault.

    If the search form name has a space in it enclose the entire switch inside of the quotes. As an example:
    “C:\Program Files\SolidWorks Enterprise PDM\Search.exe” “/S:Quick Search”
