From the command line, is possible to launch Windows Explorer (explorer.exe) and automatically select multiple files in it?

I know how to launch it and select a single file (see doc):

explorer /select,"C:\myfile.text"

But, I can't find how to select a list of files.

This answer from stackoverflow might help. It would appear that it's not easily done (or even possible?) from the command line.
