I already support enabled. None of my settings in mIRC have changed, but IE6 has been upgraded to the latest SP, since upgrading XP to SP2. I believe the issue lies within IE6 and not mIRC.
I've gone to "http://www.mirc-help.de/help/oldmirclink.html" and tried to configure IE6 the way it is instructed...Open Windows Explorer, not Internet Explorer, and select "View/Folder Options/"..
Select the "File Types" tab.
Choose the "Chat" file type, and "Edit" it, as follows:
Description: Chat Files
File Extension: chat cha
MIME Type: application/x-chat
Set it to OPEN the Application: c:\mirc\mirc32.exe
Back out all the way using the "Close" or "Okay" buttons - now if you click the link again, either mirc will be started, or, if it's already running, the current copy will be logged onto the linked server/channel. Have fun!
First of all, under "View", there are no "Folder Options".
I CAN find file types under "Tools", "Folder Options". When I do chose the file type, there is no edit option. I can select "Change" and select mIRC to open that "extension". The trouble is... it is looking for a file ending wit ".chat" (as in .HTML), to open.
I need an up to date way to configure IE6 to open <a href="irc:///." target="_blank">irc:///.</a>
