    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

    Code:
    IDR_MAINFRAME
    
    My Application\n\nMAP\nMy Application files (*.map)\n.map\nMyApplication.Document\nMy Application Document
    Then insert the following two lines into the InitInstance of your application class after AddDocTemplate :

    Code:
    EnableShellOpen();
    RegisterShellFileTypes(TRUE);
    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)
    {
    CWinApp::EnableShellOpen();
    CWinApp::RegisterShellFileTypes(bCompat);//TRUE

    }
