Saving Calypso programs to PDM

We are having issues saving and using Calypso CMM programs to PDM. All other files (Solidworks, Mastercam, Microsoft office etc) are accessible to view or copy without checking the files out. We need the same ability with CMM programs, to run the program without the operator needing to check the file out. The only one that should ever need to check out a program is a programmer when edits/revisions are required. But running the CMM program from PDM is proving a challenge. We can't seem to run the program without checking it out and this causes problems with the program not working correctly. Admittedly, I don't know enough about Calypso to understand why this won't work as it works fine with other software application files. Additionally, Calypso creates a slew of what ends up being temp or ghost files that cannot be checked into the vault and is causing issues with the operators who we are trying to force into checking in all their work every night. IS there something obvious in PDM that I am missing????
