Wilcom Hatch is what I use to create my design. The design files that I create are what I need to change.
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
this is an example of one of the files I create for embroidery machines
Expert:  George Sibiya replied 1 month ago.

Wilcom Hatch wont install on my machine.

So, the property you would like to change is one seen when you right-click on the file and then properties like here?

Ok thanks I'll update you

Expert:  George Sibiya replied 1 month ago.

Please try SubInACL from Microsoft.

I have just tested it. You can change ownership of a file to a specific System user

You may test that while I look for one to change an Author as opposed to Owner if they should differ in your case.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
they do differ this wont work for me I will wait till hear from you.
Expert:  George Sibiya replied 1 month ago.

Hello. I see you are still having difficulties locating software to edit author properties. What kind of document dos your software create like a PDF or something similar?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
They are embroidery files
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Here is an example
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
can you help?
Expert:  Richard Freese replied 1 month ago.

I finally had time to take a loo at this. So far, I have not found and utility that will work on HUS files. Adobe does not support this format. I reached out to some colleagues and they pretty much confirmed this as well. Sorry I don't have a better answer.

I just need something to edit any file when in windows 10 explorer and you right click and choose properties. that is where i want to be able to change the author. I could on win 7 but not win 10?
Expert:  Richard Freese replied 26 days ago.

Okay. Now in understand. Let me see what I can come up with here.

Customer: replied 22 days ago.
any luck?
Expert:  Richard Freese replied 22 days ago.

Hi. Thanks for the reminder. I have three other JA cases I am working along with my issues at work. I have researched the issue. Windows 10, while far better than win 8 and 8.1 still does not make a pimple on the but of win 7 when it comes to the kinds of things you are used to. Renaming a file works like before but the functionality you are trying to use, did not get migrated over. I am still researching it though. I will get back to you as soon as I have an answer.

Customer: replied 22 days ago.
thank you thought i had just lost my knowledge of computers but nothing i tried work
Expert:  Richard Freese replied 22 days ago.

This is the track I am following. This gets us close but I don't think this would work. Check out the dialog in blog. I am still researching this. So stand by.

Customer: replied 22 days ago.
tried over 30 programs so far none worked
Expert:  Richard Freese replied 22 days ago.

it turns out that there are a lot of users out there with the same issue you are encountering. All worked well in Win 7 but not in Win 10. Why dos Microsoft do this crap? removing useful functionality. I am still trying to find something. And I think I am getting close.

Customer: replied 17 days ago.
any luck yet?
Expert:  Richard Freese replied 17 days ago.

Sorry for the delay. I have been busy caring for my wife as she has been ill the last few days. I will have time today to resume my efforts on this. I will get back to you soon.

Expert:  Richard Freese replied 17 days ago.

Customer: replied 17 days ago.
I have win 10 that is for a mac
Expert:  Richard Freese replied 17 days ago.

Don't know what happened. Here is an attachment of the utility.

Expert:  Richard Freese replied 17 days ago.

I tried this on my windows 10 system here at work. It seemed to work okay. Let me know if it worked for you.

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
it does for some things but author is not one of them unless it is a MS office doc
Expert:  Richard Freese replied 16 days ago.

You have to get the pro version which is only $19.95. Here is the link: http://www.foryoursoft.com/buyfpe.htm?REFER=FPF3.7.5.1

Give it a try.

Expert:  Richard Freese replied 16 days ago.

I believe the pro version will do what you want. I tried a couple of times with different kinds of files and it would stop me and say "You need the pro version do do this. It allowed you to add fields like "Author" which is one you one you wanted. I did a lot of research to get this info. I would appreciate at least a five start rating for my effort. I will get paid and have more opportunity to earn more for my work. It would be appreciated sir.

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
I bought it but it does not work on my embroidery files
Customer: replied 16 days ago.
I have sent a tech support request to them so we shall see what happens
Expert:  Richard Freese replied 16 days ago.

It's a shame that this did not work. Good luck. Let me know if you need me to do some more research.

Expert:  Richard Freese replied 16 days ago.

Okay so, send me a fresh embroidery file and the license key for the software and I will work on it too. It may be a while before you hear from their support team.

Expert:  Richard Freese replied 15 days ago.

There has been no response. I am assuming you have it handled. Therefore, I will opt out of this case. Have a great day.
