I don' t think this is a supported use case for WGM. WGM doesn't allow you to open Creo authored files in SW. The last time I tried, It doesn't even allow neutral files created in Creo to be opened in SW

Rahul - @BineshKumar1 is corrrect. This use-case is not really supported. If you can elaborate on the use-case and what you are trying to accomplish, we might suggest some alternate workflows. 

 

You should be able to export / Save A Copy >> SolidWorks from Creo (you will need the Collaboration Extension for SolidWorks licenses in Creo) and then open that in SolidWorks via the WGM.

 

Thanks,

 

Mark
