Change SSID on about 100 Cisco Aironets? I have WLSE if it helps

I have about 100 Cisco Aironet WAPs, mostly 1200-series, but not entirely. I need to change the SSID on every device. I have a web-based tool, the WLSE (Wireless LAN Solutions Engine), but I've never worked with it, so I'm not sure if it can help me or not.
This is a new network that we have taken over, and my expertise is not in the Cisco WAPs, although I can figure out and manage individual devices. I'd just rather not have to go device by device if possible to make this single line change.
If anyone can provide a solution, or even just a link to the right data, as Cisco's Support Site can often say too much before actually getting to the point (thus getting lost on the site), it would be appreciated.
Thanks.

The Cisco Network Assistant does this kind of thing with ease as long as your access points are supported. The 120 series are indeed supported.

Just add all of the WAP's to your topology and then go to 'Configure > Wireless >WLANs (SSIDs)' and change the SSID there.

This looks like a great solution. I downloaded and installed it, but get a "Connection Failed" message when I try to create a community and discover devices. The devices this error is reporting on are reachable via ping and HTTP.
Finding troubleshooting resources for this product seems limited - Any ideas on what this means or where I can get some troubleshooting assistance?

Figured it out. The WAPs aren't listening on the default HTTP port 80.
Made that adjustment, and we found them!
