its the same basic concept as a hyperlink or and email link that opens another program, the irc:// prefix is simply associated with mIRC more then likly via a small reg entry or something along those lines wink

Om3gA is correct the IRC Protocol along with other URL: * Protocols are Entries in the Registry, you can be capable of creating these Entries by going to Tools\Folder Options… and selecting “File Types” tab, or making an .reg file to import.

Here’s Informatics about mIRC’s IRC Protocol;

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\irc]
@="URL:IRC Protocol"
"EditFlags"=dword:00000002
"URL Protocol"=""
"BrowserFlags"=dword:00000008

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\irc\DefaultIcon]
@="\"C:\\Program Files\\mIRC\\mirc.exe\""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\irc\Shell]
@=""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\irc\Shell\open]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\irc\Shell\open\command]
@="\"C:\\Program Files\\mIRC\\mirc.exe\" -noconnect %1"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\irc\Shell\open\ddeexec]
@="%1"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\irc\Shell\open\ddeexec\Application]
@="mIRC"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\irc\Shell\open\ddeexec\IfExec]
@="%1"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\irc\Shell\open\ddeexec\Topic]
@="Connect"

No other place except my brain, I’ve been working with computers long enough to know most of this stuff… I use to remote people 24/7 fixing them up of all different types of computer related issues, even do odd jobs locally fixing people’s computers up… Work with 3 Software Security Companys and I could go…

That Layout was “Exact” Export right from my Registry, I got good memory but I don’t got good enough memory to remember every Keys, Data, Value strings...
