c# program file association

P: n/a
I wanted to know how you would associate a file extenstion with a c#
program. For instance, I wanted to allow a user to double click a .org file,
and then have it open in my org program (which is an mdi app). Also, if the
org program is already open, i wanted the clicked file to open as another
mdi window (each file is it's own mdi window). Anyone have any links to
tutorials or quick explanations? I'm also using vs.net 2003 in case anyone
knows of any ide related shortcuts for the task.

Thanks!

There is a great article on how to set file associations with Visual
Studio .NET Deployment at
