EnableShellOpen for a dialog application

I made a dialog application that reads some data from a file with extention *.abc then excute some action.

I want to register the extention *.abc so that my application can be opened and excuted from explorer (by double click on the file name *.abc) or by using shellexecute... from another application.

I know how to do that in case of Doc-View application by simply adding the abc extention to the resource file and adding the following to my initinstance function:
      //Enable DDE execute open
      EnableShellOpen();
      RegisterShellFileTypes();

Now how can I do the same for a dialog application ( which by default does not have a document class)?

Add following entries to registry.

\\HKEY_CLASS_ROOT\.abc\Shell\Open\Command

and set the default value to your application executables.

I hope you know how to use registry functions.
