A good feature would be the ability for registered users,and maybe unregged users as well, to automatically update their mIRC client from inside of mIRC. Just an idea.

Not a bad idea. Anyone know of a batch file way?

Have a look, here the same would apply to 'your' idea.

There are many scripts (that can be found via the resources on this website, here in the 'Scripting section' that will on start/whatever, check if a newer version exists and tell you, some might even download the actual install file, however i doubt any will actually install it.

Due to the fact it would take a while to "navigate" the install and also its recommended previous versions of mIRC not be running while installing newer ones (due to the fact they use the same directory), a "script" couldnt do it.

A batch file, can be run, but would only be able to load the install file, not complete it and mirc can do this anyway, via /run and simply /exit after it.. so that wouldnt work.
