You have to work in you application code to take the command line (ie the path of the file) into account to load that file. Did you do that already? (the function Command$ returns the command line parameters...)
How have you setup the folder options: did you say in the open method to use <apppath>\<yourapp>.exe "%1", so that the file clicked will be passed as command line parameter to the application?
