Hi All,

I am working in a text editor application. I want my exe to be able to handle set of file extensions. for example: *.txt and *.pas files.

What I wanted to do is that if someone double-clicked any file with the extension of *.txt from windows explorer, then my exe will run and open that file.

I can associate the *.txt extension to be linked with my exe throu' windows explorer. But I am unable to get that file name as soon as my exe fires.
