Default Application contextual Menu in windows explorer

I have an editor created with delphi. I have created a contextual menu in windows explorer to open the selected files with my editor exemple (open with myeditor). Works fine with one file, but when I select more than one file it opens my application the same number of times as the number of files selected.

Basically, I would like to do something similar to Ultraedit, Open multiple files from windows explorer contextual menu.

From Here I dont know were to go!

Default RE: Application contextual Menu in windows explorer

you don't specify if your program is opened many times as you selected files but with first file or with every selected file.
I supose you have open your application x-times for every of selected files.
Try test multiinstance of your program when it's start. If you see programm running, find his main window and send some message with FileName otherwise call some function like OpenNewEditWindow(FileName).
On this server you found a lots of articles about multiinstance and sending messages.

If it help you please give me a point.
