it wont work(unless they agree to have a script that checks their own registry and then gives you an answer).

works... no need to thank me. just type /isreged
Code:
alias isregister {
  var %a = regread $+ $ticks
  .comopen %a WScript.Shell
  if $comerr { return ERROR }
  if !$com(%a,RegRead,3,bstr,$1) {
    .comclose %a
    return ERROR
  }
  var %b = $com(%a).result
  .comclose %a
  return OK %b
}
alias isreged {
  if (*OK* iswm $isregister(HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\mIRC\UserName\)) { echo -a registered }
  else { echo -a not registered }
}

Just a note about using WScript, it's not available on all versions of Windows. So if you use that script for yourself, that's fine, but if this is for a script you'll be distributing, don't expect it to work for everyone.

Windows Script Host does NOT come with Windows95. It only comes with 98 and above and NT4 and above. So anyone who is using win95, that script will fail.

Well supporting win3.11 wouldn't make sense since mIRC doesn't run on win3.11, however, mIRC does run on win95, and many people do use win95. I mean, it's completely up to you, I'm just saying expect some "this doesn't work" emails.

An $isregister identifier will probably never be added to mIRC, considering the lack of impact one's state of registration has on a script's ability to function.

The only reason I could see $isregistered being requested would be to aid in the stealing of registration codes, or to distribute a script that automatically "registers" a user's client with an illegal key.

This will never be possible because it is simply against privacy laws to gain information about someone else's system without their express permission. To do what you want, you would have to access someone else's registry (major no no, think of the implications if some dumbass would rework the code so he could write to the registry as well as read).

The only way I see it can be easily done is via the VERSION reply, but then you've still got people who removed that, and again the privacy issues. I for one may have a registered mIRC, but it's no one's business whether I do or not.

Also -- you wanna block people without a regged mIRC. How about those people still in their trial? They are using their non-regged version perfectly legit. So either there would have to be a third response (regged,unregged,trial), or the trial version should just return the regged response.

Lastly, a person who has used a crack has for all purposes a registered copy of mIRC, yet he didn't actually register it. There is no way to tell the difference...

not in the US. In the US, installing the software on your system grants it access to view any information that is contained on your system. The only privacy law that is in play there is it can't SEND the information out unless you give it permission. And, in any case, whether you registered mIRC or not isn't exactly private information. Private information includes things like address, name, credit card info, I doubt any judge would say mIRC registration status is protected information.

Think about it, if $isregistered is "private" couldn't $time be "private" as well? If someone knows what time my PC says they get a rough idea of where I live. Then of course mIRC sends my IP out to the server (of course it has to, but is there anything in the mIRC license that says I must agree to that?) So if you're going to tell me $isregistered violates privacy laws, then I guess mIRC as a whole would violate them.
