For those looking for an alternative to ignoring this issue:

All my resources are downloadable programs, so it made sense to change the schema type from CreativeWork to SoftwareApplication.

This is the list of types that Google allows, pick a type that matches your content
Code:
http://schema.org/Book
http://schema.org/Course
http://schema.org/CreativeWorkSeason
http://schema.org/CreativeWorkSeries
http://schema.org/Episode
http://schema.org/Event
http://schema.org/Game
http://schema.org/HowTo
http://schema.org/LocalBusiness
http://schema.org/MediaObject
http://schema.org/Movie
http://schema.org/MusicPlaylist
http://schema.org/MusicRecording
http://schema.org/Organization
http://schema.org/Product
http://schema.org/Recipe
http://schema.org/SoftwareApplication

Fairly easy to do via Template Modifciation, just do like this:

Template:
xfrm_resource_view

Find:
"@type": "CreativeWork",

Replace:
"@type": "SoftwareApplication",
Then test using this tool:
Url


It will tell you what fields you need to add (ignore optional fields unless you wanna add them). Check the types expecting for each field at https://schema.org to ensure compliance . These are typically just text, but sometimes nested objects are required which might be too complicated for noobs.

Add them and re-run the test until it's happy

This ended up being all I needed to put in the replace:
Code:
"@type": "SoftwareApplication",
"operatingSystem": "Windows",
"applicationCategory": "Gaming",
