Ok guys, I'm on a roll today with asking/posting questions, what I'm trying to do is start mIRC when someone turns on my computer, and, I want it to be on tray and locked, here's what I got working so far:
-------
I got it to start on windows startup
I got it to go to tray
I got it to connect
--I didn't get it to lock using showmirc -lt
-------
Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?

A secondary installation used for a bot, or at least that's what I use it for.
Kurdish Assassin: I found that the -l switch only works with the -nt switches..ie: -lnt not -lt or -ln

/showmirc -nlt
if you are, it's not working.

ok, this is exactly what happens:
-----
I start my computer
Everything loads as usual
mIRC loads on tray with all of the other programs
mIRC connects to the 'dynastynet.net' server (which the on connect script is used for)
mIRC stays in tray
mIRC does not lock, it opens if someone d-clicks the icon.
-----
if anyone know why this is, please help.
Help appreciated.

no, I found out the problem, but, I don't know how to solve it...it said something like:
* /shomirc -lmt: cannot use in event
^ talking about being in remotes, don't know how to fix this though.

Is it the fact the reason why you get that message is because you typed /shomirc rather then /showmirc?


Code:
if $reality > $fiction { set %sanity Sane }
Else { echo -a *voices* }

"mIRC does not lock, it opens if someone d-clicks the icon."

ok so hidden into the tray etc etc etc , but low and behold it wont stay down there with the enter the password screen if u click on it.

And again i say this is going to be becuase the [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\mIRC\LockOptions] is a user profile specific registry key, so is still unset when someone else logs on.

Just amagine if it wasnt, BOB logs on runs mirc, locks it, then powers down the pc, MIKE starts the pc up logs on and runs mirc, minimizes it, and then discovers its locked!
