Hi there,

i am working on a design app. In the app i can work with text, graphics, images,... Basically i store all properties of all objects into an array. This can be saved to the desktop with the file extension .mipu

On Mac i use the appleEvent, which checks if the file contains .mipu and if yes, calls the command LoadProject tFile.
So when the app is not running and the user doubleklicks a .mipu file, the app starts and loads the project.

Obviously this does not work on windows.

Does anybody have an idea how i can achieve this on windows?

Have a nice day!
