I have MIRC 6.31, running nicely.
Using my Script Editor, under the "Popups" tab, and viewing the "Nick List" view, I have entered several more commands,
and then clicked on "OK".

Now, when I right-click on my "nicks" panel (on the right), all my new/added commands show up, and are executable. Great.

But when I view my "popups.ini" file, with a text editor, there is nothing in that file containing my changes.

I shut MIRC down, then restart it, and my commands are still available, yet the "popups.ini" file still does not contain them.

There is no other "popups.ini" file on my computer... I have done an exhaustive search.

So where are these commands stored ?????????
(This is so frustrating)

Thanks

you have them stored in remote.ini ?
Code:
menu nicklist {
  This will show up in nicklist popups:{ echo -a Nicklist. }
}
menu channel {
  This will show up in channel popups:{ echo -a Channel. } 
}
menu status {
  This will show up in status popups:{ echo -a Status. } 
}
menu query {
  This will show up in query popups:{ echo -a Query. } 
}


if ($me != tired) { return } | else { echo -a Get a pot of coffee now $+($me,.) }

Thanks for your response,

BUT

I have no such file anywhere on my computer.

So, again, where (in what file) are all my popup commands stored?
They are NOT anywhere in popups.ini.

Sparta meant the remote section where you place your remote scripts, if any.
Go to script editor -> Remote -> View -> You will see file with .mrc extension.
View each one of them and ctrl + F to do a search there.

And thank you also, for your response,

BUT

I have nothing in my remote panel... it is empty... zip... nada.

Down at the bottom (below the open panel) it has a filename
of scripts\remote.ini,
but I have no such file on my computer.

Now can people see why I am really frustrated ?????

Where in hell is my nick list popups script file ????
and where is it ?????

Also, I have no files called *.mrc anywhere on my computer.

Well then you got anything in your remote.ini? It is located in your mirc directory.

I do NOT have a remote.ini file anywhere on my computer,
as I said in my earlier post.

Type: //echo $mircdir $+ $readini($mircini,pfiles,n3)

That will give the location where mIRC attempts to save nicklist popup entries.

Well, after some further deeper research, it appears that Vista,
when doing a "search" on my C: drive, requires that I go into "advanced search", and check (enable) the
"include non-indexed, system, and hidden files" box, for it to look everywhere.

Bingo.... it is in my "Users\xxx\Appdata\Roaming\MIRC\scripts" folder.

Dammit guys, sorry for the mis-leading information.

OK, now I have found them, I now know where to look, and if I want to copy, backup before changing, I can do so.

Thanks for your help.
