Is there a way to open Solidworks Files (part and assembly) in Read-Only State from network drive? with using windows sharing capabilities? if so can I get the solution please?
For that you can simply set the folder permissions for his user id.
Why you want to open in read-only mode? If you just want to view why don't you use LDR mode.
Scenario is the person must not be able to edit/ modify any part/ assembly but just to view any part/assembly from the network drive. rest of the other designers must have full read/write access for all the files.
user must have read-only rights to " *.sldprt & *.sldasm " file extensions only. rest files in the directory must be accessible with full rights.
I'm not sure but company policies can set accordingly.
There are ways around it, save-as a different file name is one.
