I've searched the other topics and I don't think this precise question has been asked before. If it has, I apologize. To summarize, I have used v6.35 since it came out and, when it was needed to adapt to use SSL, I downloaded the necessary files and placed them appropriately and was able to connect with SSL. However, due to other circumstances, I've had to do a full format and re-install of my OS and all my programs, including trusty mIRC v6.35. Again, I've downloaded all necessary files and placed them appropriately. However, it will not show SSL as being active/available. This includes a $false response to $sslready command. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
