    Windows shell commands - multiple files

    I'm trying to create a shell command (through regedit) that when the user selects multiple files in exploreer, right-clicks and selects the command this list of files is sent to my program. For single files you'd use a command like "MyProg.exe %1" but how do you do it with multiple files?

    I think you need to use COM for multiple files as the standard verb methods you are using are pretty strict.

    I put programs into my "sendto" folder all the time, and just grab bunches of files and send them to my programs.

    The selected files all appear in argv[]
