Hello

I am using an own file-extension (.urp) for my files. Now I want that if a user is clicking on such a file, my application is launched like this:
c:\a.exe -james.urp

How can I register .urp in the registry?
I've already done it once, but cannot find that project...

Thanks

Here's one approach: http://www.mentalis.org/soft/class.qpx?id=5

I use Advanced Installer from Caphyon to generate my setups, since I work with projects that often require several third-party libraries (.NET 2.0, .NET 3.0, ESRI ArcGIS, etc). Among other cool features, it includes the functionality to do the association at setup.
