I want to be able to have an installation of mirc with scripts that I use, installed, and another one without scripts for basic chatting, is this possible?

Yep. You can either install mirc in another directory (you can use the mirc installer or simply copy and paste the mirc.exe [and mirc.hlp if you want]), installing twice may have some sideeffects on registry settings (not sure, but it may overwrite the earlier versions entry in the "add/remove programs" control panel) and shortcuts, none of these seem major though.

You can also use the -i<ini.file> command line parameter (just make a shortcut with the parameters) to have the same mirc run different configurations (scripts, nicks etc.) with multiple instances of your mirc.exe - which will save a little disk space and clutter. See /help command line for more information.

Hope that helps. smile
