If you're doing a document/view structured program you can associate the file to the program.
Firstly, you'll need to change the resource for the document specifying file type etc :
This is in the string tables e.g. if the extension is .map
Then insert the following two lines into the InitInstance of your application class after AddDocTemplate :
My Application\n\nMAP\nMy Application files (*.map)\n.map\nMyApplication.Document\nMy Application Document
That should do the trick. This will associate whatever extension with your application and your application will fire up and open a file when it is double clicked.

You can do the same for your dialogbased application .
Use the following
void CYourApp::RegisterShellFileTypes(BOOL bCompat)
