' Preconditions:
' 1. Open a part or assembly.
' 2. Open the Immediate window.
' Postconditions:
' 1. Gets configuration properties for each of the configurations
'    in the part or assembly.
' 2. Examine the Immediate window.
' NOTE: All parameters and their values are returned as strings.
' It is up to the application to interpret the meaning of
' each parameter and perform the appropriate conversion.
Option Explicit
Sub main()
    Dim swApp As SldWorks.SldWorks
    Dim swModel As SldWorks.ModelDoc2
    Dim swConfigMgr As SldWorks.ConfigurationManager
    Dim vConfName As Variant
    Dim vConfParam As Variant
    Dim vConfValue As Variant
    Dim i As Long
    Dim j As Long
    Dim bRet As Boolean
    Set swApp = Application.SldWorks
    Set swModel = swApp.ActiveDoc
    Set swConfigMgr = swModel.ConfigurationManager
    Debug.Print "File = " + swModel.GetPathName
    vConfName = swModel.GetConfigurationNames
    For i = 0 To UBound(vConfName)
        bRet = swConfigMgr.GetConfigurationParams(vConfName(i), vConfParam, vConfValue)
        Debug.Assert bRet
        Debug.Print "  Configuration = " & vConfName(i)
        If Not IsEmpty(vConfParam) Then
            For j = 0 To UBound(vConfParam)
                Debug.Print "    " & vConfParam(j) & " = " & vConfValue(j)
            Next j
        End If
    Next i
