Creating new file extensions?

I am writing an application, one of whose functions is to save the contents of a listbox to file. I have created a new file type in explorer to easily identify these. I would like this new file type to be installed into a client p.c. when they run the application installation. How would I go about doing this.

Many Thanks,
             Dust.

In fact, you need several registry keys to be merged to the client's installation:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.<yourextention>
  <default value>=YourApplication.File

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\YourApplication.File
  shell
    open
       command
          <default value>=yourapp.exe

You should look at your registry for similar entries...
