Set write permissions based on user?

We would like to allow users to read DxDesigner schematics for projects that they are not part of, but deny write access.

 

We are using EE7.9.4u6, and we use concurrent access using "server mode".  By default all engineers have read access (windows file permissions) to all the project directories to allow them to re-use / share information between projects.  However it seems that DxDesigner is unable to open a design unless the user has full read-write access.  Trying to open a design on a drive (or DVD) that is read-only results in an error.

 

Is it possible to set read-write permissions on only a very small sub-set of files that would allow an engineer to open the design as read-only?  e.g. <proj>.prj

 

We know about starting DxD in readonly mode, and have shortcuts for it, but this is about denying write access through file permissions, not about relying on people using read-only mode.
