Normally, those messages would be used by the Windows context menu stuff
to run commands for individual files e.g. PRINT and OPEN.
But it looks like our file associations are configured to simply exec()
a new copy of LibreOffice.
Way back in the day DDE was also used as a primitive form of
Inter-Process Communication, but that has long since been superceded by
So I'm guessing that this code is pretty dead.
