Hi,
    How can I implement same functionality of dsw(workspace) file in my program? I want that when
I click on a file with extension say ".abc" It should
open corresponding ".xyz" and ".pqr" file in the same
folder. Can i Do it using VC++?. Also if i can use VB
will it be simpler?
Any help appreciated.

Studio opens all project files mentioned in .dsw file. That can be achieved by just parsing the file .abc in your app for filenames and open those files. ABC must be a registered extension which opens with your app for that purpose.

Hi SteH,
    Can you elaborate your answer little more using syntax of VC++ 6.0 ?

First of all,
I am double clicking on file name with extension .abc in explorer. So how does my program get the name of the file and its path ? How to handle it  in my code?

Further,
How do I know which  other files are present in the same folder? Can I get list of files present in any folder using
any API?

-Thanks
p10m

I am not sure for a MFC app. Places to look for are in CWinApp::InitInstance () using
ParseCommandLine (CCommandLineInfo& cmdLine)
and looking at the command line info.

To search for files in a directory you can use the code found in
http://www.codeguru.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=231184
and just set the last parameter to false (not including subdirs).
