Well, from the little thought I gave to the problem, to me it seems 
better to have all the properties
shown at once. I know it's fast since it's executed right at the start 
of the project but I prefer this
to run, find missing, declare, run, find missing, declare, run, .... you 
get the idea.
It's just a personal preference I guess. I haven't thought of the 
multiple fail unless like that though.
That looks good as well.
