I would like to associate my program with a filetype. It would be launched simply "prog.exe file.ahm". I found an install creator that enables me to add a registry key during installation. However I dont't know what to write there to associate a filetype in such a way. I've already found out it should be a HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT. Can anybody tell me what to write int the "path:", "key:", "value:" fields, and what type of key should it be (string, binary etc.), to accomplish my goal? Thanks :)
