I'd double check you have the 7.15 exe. I just got 7.15 and it returns the correct version

It woould appear to be that the mirc.ini doesn't update. installed it as portable with the Settings.ini unchecked.

My md5: 79fabe4c133262df9b15b78ad1730362

What I did:
1) downloaded v7.15
2) shutdown mIRC v7.14
3) Ran the mIRC 7.15 setup.exe
4) clicked next on the screen that recommends closing all programs before installation
5) Agree to terms
6) Choose my folder(The folder my v7.14.exe is in)
7) Clicked yes, when the msgbox appears telling me the folder exists
8) Unchecked everything but "Text Files" and "Help Files" then clicked "next"
9) Unchecked everything but "Run as portable application" and clicked next.
10) Clicked next again.
11) Clicked the "Do not install..." radio button when the ad appears.
12) Then clicked install
13) Once install is finished, I check "run" and click "done"
14) Once mIRC loads, $version = 7.14

FroggieDaFrog, the correct MD5 for the 7.15 executable is 06c7efde71fd9bec2d5e08e2e37a466f (just confirming that StrawberryKitty's hash is correct). The MD5 for the installer is 7edc8f8ea28b437d432716f332ddaf4c.

I'm not sure what your hash is from. The 7.14 executable was f0039ef62f2672aa9dbaa4c8bffe233c, which also doesn't match your hash.

Ekkk... that's not good having a hash completely different to both versions x.x

lol, i used $md5($mircexe) instead of $md5($mircexe,2). Got the following through: //echo -a $md5($mircexe,2):

06c7efde71fd9bec2d5e08e2e37a466f

And an update. After exiting mIRC(after the initial upgrade/install) and then restarting the version was correct.

The $version identifier returns the internal version number - so it would not be possible for it to return 7.14 on one occasion and 7.15 on another. Are you perhaps using your own $version identifier or alias?

Or this mIRC was made up from other site?

Think Froggie updated while mIRC was running, didn't realize it was running, assumed it had launched and entered $version... this would have installed the update while leaving the original in memory...

i've done it lol...

Can't be that because mIRC doesn't allow you to overwrite internal identifiers. Local aliases can overwrite internal identifiers for a script, but there would be no way he could call $version from the command line and get anything other than the internal return value.

Would have to use $/version or $.version

$version() calls a custom alias.

Re: 7.15 version - 12/11/10 07:45 PM

No alias named version used
install was gotten from mirc.com

see #2 & #13
'2) shutdown mIRC v7.14'
'13) Once install is finished, I check "run" and click "done"'
I made sure it was closed...

Straight up, you're using 7.14.

Do you really think it's possible that you're the only person able to reproduce $version returning 7.14 when the identifier is returning a static string of text? I mean, really... the obvious alternative is so obvious.

Drop this obviously false bug report. Re-download mIRC, re-install it properly, it will work fine.
