Don't know if you can do that the windows-way...

But there are several possibilities to do that in RR.

You could read in text-files and inititialze all labels/field 

Or do the same with customproperty-sets...
You can find a short example of this on my website -> X-talk -> CP-Sets1

Drop a line if you need further info/assistance.
