file association question

08-06-2004, 11:35 AM
Hey. I already know how to setup my installer to make my program open a file and how to open the file from the command$ string. My question is how do you make your program open a file when it is already running? :confused: My software only runs 1 copy on the machine at a time. Is there an easy way to send it a message like "Hey buddy grab this file:". I'd prefer something like interupt driven where i'm not polling something with a timer every 100ms or so. It seems like MS word and many other programs have some standard functionality with this. Thanks!!! :D :D
