My File Property API contains .NET classes that wrap Microsoft's Structured Storage API and allow you to open a file's property sets for read\write operations. It works almost exactly like Solid Edge provided API.
The reason I wrote the API:
1. I wanted to learn about Structured Storage
2. Some people have a need to read \ write file properties without SE installed
3. SE provided API is COM based, so you end up dealing with 2 layers of COM interop
You get it to work by downloading the .dll, referencing the .dll from a project and you can use the example code on the download page to see how it works.
