If your web part is stored in V3 format (http://schemas.microsoft.com/WebPart/v3) then the following example demonstrates how to get web part property:

$path="c:\Search Box.webpart"

$propertyName = "Title"  #replace to your property name UrlWebPart
[xml]$webPart = Get-Content $path
$property = $webPart.webParts.webPart.data.properties.property | Where-Object {$_.name -eq $propertyName }
$propertyValue = $property.'#text'
  • cannot convert value system.xml.xmlement to type system.xml.xmldocument
