The Explorer will scan the registry searching for the application name associated with the file extension. When found it reads the shell/open keys and checks if there are entries for command, ddeexec, and DropTarget. Then it will use the found method with the highest priority to pass the data (file names) to your application after starting it if necessary.

Nothing must be installed in the Explorer. You must only create the registry keys and add code to your application to handle the data (the code for basic command handling is already present). Other file browsers should do it like the Explorer.

One reason why IDropTarget was choosen is explained in the link:
Quote:
This method leverages an application's existing drop target implementation (if one exists), making it easy for applications that already support drag-and-drop through an IDropTarget implementation on their top level window to map that functionality into a verb that ise presented in the explorer.

I don't think Word is still using DDE (while old versions probably used it). It will probably use IDropTarget.
