Is it possible to install mIRC silent?
And mabye also use something like:

mirc.exe -silent -script="%cdrom%\mirc\scriptfile.mrc"

So that mIRC installs silent and also loading a scriptfile.

A silent switch is a great feature for making unattended windows installations.

Its also a wonderful way of abusing someones system remotely, and personally I wouldnt see much use for it, if you werent at the computer, you wouldnt be installing it.

Agreed, this would be a major hassle for hacking people.

The -script switch would create an unnecessary risk of being misused, however the -silent switch wouldn't.


Spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, and stupid comments are intentional.

Yeah true, but personally I cant see any use of installing mIRC "automatically" and silently, especially on a Windows Platform.
