Opening multiple files in context menu

P: n/a

Ok, i am making a file renaming utility, you can add filesize (in MB o
KB), filepath, creation date and/or time, a counter, parent folder, th
original name etc...
I put the program in the (registry: *.*\shell\myprogram\command(valu
of the comand key is "...\myprogram.exe" "%1") context menu, so tha
when you select multiple files, the paths would be passed to th
program.
First i was having problems with multiple instances of my program, an
repeated opening of the Move Files dialog. I solved the multipl
instance problem(mutex).
In Main each instance would write the path of args[0] to a file o
registry, then the first instance would collect these, the others woul
then shut themselfs down.
This works, but i cant get rid of the annoying Move Files dialog. Thi
also hapens when i multiselect and open .txt with notepad
