      I found out for myself ;-)

      Here, for anybody else who needs it, is what I did.

      1. I downloaded the FreeMind Windows Launcher from Patches (1059309)

      2. Then, I wrote the following  batch file:

      c:
      
      cd..
      cd..
      cd..
      cd..
      cd..
      
      cd Program Files
      
      cd freemind-bin-0\_8\_0\_beta4
      
      start /HIGH freemind.exe
      

      3. In Windows Explorer, I went to Tools, Folder Options, File Types and deleted the registered file type for "mm"

      4. Next time I clicked on an mm file, I selected the batch file as the application to be used with files of type "mm".

      Now, I can double-click on an mm file to launch FreeMind with High priority.

      I also put a shortcut to the batch file in the "sendto" folder so that it was available from the right-click "send to" menu.

      Hope this helps somebody else.
