creating single-instance executables using python/py2exe

I have created an application using python/wxPython and py2exe. I have 
associated a certain file extension with this application so that when I 
double-click the file, my application is launched. The application runs 
fine except that a new instance is created when I double click on two 
different files. Is there a way in which I can make sure only one 
instance is created? Any additional files are opened in the same running 
instance? Would appreciate any comments/feedback.
