Straight up, you're using 7.14.

Do you really think it's possible that you're the only person able to reproduce $version returning 7.14 when the identifier is returning a static string of text? I mean, really... the obvious alternative is so obvious.

Drop this obviously false bug report. Re-download mIRC, re-install it properly, it will work fine.
