The agent issue has already been reported. The lack of updates or support doesn't mean much as long as mIRC continues to function properly. Since the compatibility message can be hidden permanently, it's not going to be a serious issue but I imagine Khaled will change the way mIRC loads agents to avoid the message in a future update.

You need to release the next version of mirc without the need of Microsoft® Agent. This is since as of 1 May 2009 Microsoft have stopped the development of Microsoft® Agent and will not use it in Windows 7.

As mentioned above, this will likely be done in a future release.

I have been contacted by Microsoft regarding this issue (it appears that mIRC may have been one of the most active projects using Agent) and can confirm that this is not an mIRC issue.

mIRC does not require Microsoft Agent to work. mIRC looks for Agent on startup and if Agent is not installed, all Agent-related settings in mIRC are disabled.

The problem appears to be that Windows 7 assumes that any application that tries to load agent is a badly designed application that will crash if Agent is not present. So it reports this as a potential error, even for well designed applications that cleanly handle this situation.

This is unfortunate because it means that mIRC cannot test for Agent using standard methods under Windows 7 and will have to use a kludge to check whether Agent is installed for users who wish to continue using Agent under Windows 7. mIRC will continue to use the standard method under all other versions of Windows.

One suggestion is to not use NNScript.

An other suggestion to report this error into the NNScript author , send him/her an email or find a way to contact with him/her.
