Dear mIRC User,

mIRC v7.64 has been released today.

This is a small update that addresses a number of issues reported by users since the last release. It includes improvements, changes and fixes to a number of features, including:

Updated OpenSSL library to v1.1.1i.
Fixed /timer -h multimedia timer imprecision at low resolutions.
Extended custom DLL LOADINFO structure to include maximum data byte size.
Fixed Bind to Adapter/IP address bug and added block option for failed binds, eg. with VPNs.
Changed $base() to remove limit on floating point precision for larger bases.
Updated installer to backup files into dated folders.
Updated LibZip library to v1.7.3.
Added $ticksqpc that returns a high resolution tick count.
Changed how notices are displayed so that consecutive notices from the same user are now grouped together.
Added protocol-relative redirect support to $urlget() and a 'k' switch to prevent redirects.
Fixed $utfencode() memory gpf bug that caused intermittent crashes.

How to upgrade?
mIRC is distributed in an installer that installs mIRC on your computer for you. Simply download and run the installer from the download page on the mIRC website. Follow the instructions the installer gives to you. When upgrading all your old settings and scripts will stay as they were, if you want that. Read the questions the installer asks with care and nothing can go wrong. You will be chatting with the new mIRC in no time. If you get stuck or if you want to find out more about a certain feature, just click on a Help button or browse the Help file and you should find lots of hints to help you out.

Where to download?
As always, the latest version of mIRC can be downloaded from the download page on the mIRC website.
