WM_COPYDATA and mutex selecting multiple files
Hope someone knows the answer. I am using the following method to select multiple files and folders in explorer and use them as input to my program:
* Create unique mutex from first program instance.
* When next call (next file/folder) is made check for mutex and if it is already there use
a sendmessage WM_COPYDATA to copy the file/foldername to the first instance.
Now when I choose 16 or more items in explorer I get a windows warning message that it may take a long time and the computer may respond slowly (this message is triggered before my program is called, so it looks like a default message when selecting 16 or more files and folders and use them as input to one program). I can set a check to prevent the warning message next time, but I see a lot of programs where I can select 16 or more files at once without windows showing me a warning message.
Anyone got an idea how to prevent this message maybe in code?
I integrated my program in the explorer menu with shell command in the registry.
As far as I know this is the most easy solution for selection multiple files and folders in explorer and use them as input to a program. If there are better solutions I would be happy to hear them.
