Guessing that would involve a "master app" that would do just that, since ReWire does not have "awareness" of the apps it links.
So, opening a REAPER session will automatically open Sibelius ReWired in slave mode(should do this already) and also open the associated Sibelius file that was used with that specific REAPER session, correct?

When I open a PT session that uses REAPER ReWire, REAPER will automatically launch and open. I then have to open the associated REAPER project file that I was using with that specific PT session manually. I think that's what you mean. This might sound like a job for a new sws extension:

If I was to approach this from a scripting perspective, it could probably be done if the PT Session and REAPER project file existed in the same folder together, which I do for session management anyways. If the Sibelius file stayed in the associated REAPER project folder, this could probably be easily done. I wouldn't mind seeing this feature myself.

Maybe we can inquire sws about this.
