multiple file select in windows explorer and load them in anapplication

Hello!
I set my setup project to run directly from Windows Explorer the files
of my application. Now i can only select the files one by one and
passing them separately as a parameter in my application also one at a
time.
I would instead be able to select all the files together and pass then
to my application (for example, in an array or whatever), because my
application is ready to receive the parameters that are necessary,
i've tried this doing debug and passing several parameters and it
works. I want to have from windows explorer the same functionality as
in the openfiledialog that allows multiple files mark.
I've currently put into the setup project that my application can
receive as an argument "% 1".

Thank you.
