Patch for XP? Is it true?

Patch for XP? Is it true? - 10/01/04 03:07 AM

I have a friend on mIRC to whom I want to send a file to. I am not sending any illegal file, it is a freeware program that has been updated on the website and my firend prefers the older version. I am using Windows XP and I cannot connect for dcc sends, I can however recieve them. I heard awhile back that this was a problem with XP and there was a patch available to fix it. Can anyone let me know if this is true and if so where I can download it from. Thank you.

I recommend you read this thread.

Also you can search the forum. There are several threads about your problem.

Good luck.

The only xp specific "problem" that i can think of that you are referring to is that xp has a firewall, and you may need to tweak that in order to initiate the dcc send. See the link in the thread zfr suggested.

Do please exercise caution with any "patch" someone suggests you try for anything. Too often they are trojans.

Added note:

mIRC does not release patches. *IF* it does, which is hugely unlikely, then that news will always be posted on the front homepage. If nothing is there about patches, then it means the patch is not real.

If there is a patch for Windows XP then the only legitimate ones will be released by Microsoft. If that is the case, then you can go to Windows Update to find the latest updates for Windows XP, and critical updates.

G'luck!
