This is happening at least twice a day and is starting to get extremely annoying. mIRC has been doing this for the last two releases, and was stable as a rock before that.

Description:
Faulting application mirc.exe, version 7.15.0.0, faulting module mirc.exe, version 7.15.0.0, fault address 0x000fb204.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

Standard question: what does this return for you in mIRC?
Code:
//echo -a $os $version $md5($mircexe,2) $file($mircexe).sig $script(0) $dll(0) $com(0)

My guess is that you're running a bunch of scripts (probably including DLLs) that you used in 6.35 but are not compatible with 7.x. The command you were asked to type above should clarify this.


- argv[0] on EFnet #mIRC

41 scripts? That very well could be, at least, part of the problem.

Try with a clean installation of mIRC.

And of course 1 DLL file, which argv0 has already commented on.

Running clean for a week to see if crashes reoccur. Thanks for the help.

FWIW, the DLL is probably the only component that was causing the crash. Of course, DLLs don't load themselves, so there is 1 or more associated script files that also need to be unloaded, but the rest of your scripts can be loaded back. If you don't know which script(s) is(are) associated with the DLL, you should probably do a search for the dll's filename in your script files, or google around for your scripts, or just read the readmes.

By the way, this isn't to say that all of your other scripts are *compatible* with 7.x. They may still be incompatible and display some bugs, but hopefully they won't cause a crash and should be easier to isolate.

It's worked flawlessly for a week, so I'll start adding scripts back in and see if it remains stable. Thanks for the assistance.
