mIRC has crashed several times today. I'm running about 6 copies of mIRC 6.03. Only the copy I'm using for Efnet is crashing. No DLLs are loaded. Can anyone help me find what's causing the crashing?

What version of Windows are you running?

* Raccoon notices the irony of your sig and the fact that you're still running multiple instances of mIRC long after multi-server support has been added, rather than adapting like everyone else.


Well. At least I won lunch.
Good philosophy, see good in bad, I like!

Thanks for the flame, but it doesn't really help me figure why mIRC is crashing. Why I choose to run multiple copies is irrelevant to my post. If you really must know why I choose to do so, search the board archives. I'm sure I mentioned it after the fire.

Well, as for EFNet being unique in some way to cause mIRC to crash... I would analize all your scripts where the network you're connected to causes anything different to happen. Try using /debug to pinpoint if the crash is relative to any server event, and perhaps turn /remote off to see if it still happens.

The only way I know how to crash mIRC is with $regex. Perhaps that may help.

loops can easily crash mirc.

Well they dont really crash it, they just make it stop responding so you have to terminate the application or break the loop.

alias crash {
var %i 1
while (%i <= 99999999999999999999) {
/timer -m 0 1 //echo -a blah
inc %i
}
}

i think that trying to start well over 9 billion timers would make mirc crash :tongue:

Well, i managed to get:

* Timer 653 activated

before mIRC truly froze, but when I pressed CTRL+SCROLL_LOCK, it was ok again.

* Break: command halted

I still wouldn't call it a crash, It just ties up mIRC until you break it.
Maybe if I had left it longer an error message would of came up, maybe not.
