Expression Web 4 opens many times when editing multiple file

Hello,

i used Microsoft Expression Web for years. Now Microsoft made Expression Web 4 freeware and i installed that version.

I configured it under editors for .css files:

external editor
path to binary
i did not check the option: editor opens file in separate window (i use the german version, so i do not know the exact english text).

This worked with version before v4, but v4 opens a brand new programm for every file.

How can i resolve this, i want open all files in the same program window

It is rather a question for Expression Web support.
Theres likely some configuration option or command-line argument controlling that.
Most editor have one, see:

Please let us know if you find a solution.

Thank you, i read this and i tried all the options, but it doesnt work.

Expression Web opened from Windows Explorer -> "edit in Microsoft Expression web" works -> new opened files starts in a tab of the main program window.

Any other suggestions?

Try to search registry to find what command does the Explorer use to start Expression Web.

The same as in the old version:

command = "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Expression\Web 4\ExpressionWeb.exe" /dde
ddeexec = [Open("%1")]

Ok, I've though so. It uses DDE. WinSCP does not support that.
