Hi Experts,

I would like my application to automatically open if a project file (havent decided the extension just yet) is clicked.

Just like the way an excel workbook opens Excel if clicked. I would also like to detect if my application is open when the file is clicked because there is no point starting a new application if this is so.

Is this easy or this there some serious work involved?

Cheers,

Tom
