Selected Test Results

What works

  • Scripting Language
  • Standard Windows - Not including Listbox's
  • General Chatting
  • DCC Chat
  • DCC Send (Files)
  • CTCP
  • IRC
  • Options dialog
  • Some Windows DLL's, such as nHTMLn 
  • Socket operations (see comment below, easy to miss a syntax issue compared to Win XP when using /sockopen)

What does not

  • CTRL+K Color Selector (Initializes then closes)
  • Script Editor does not show line numbers correctly, and first few charachters may be hidden behind line numbers (mIRC 6.35 includes an option to disable this, as well as a WineTricks fix)
  • Nick list does not redraw when maximised (see bug 5935) - See workaround below
  • Treeview does not paint properly (possibly related to bug above)
  • Using /splay twice within a short interval of time causes mIRC to hang (see bug 15423)
  • Many fonts does not respond to the bold tag, i.e. bold and normal text looks the same.

The script editor will cause the application to crash sooner or later unless riched20 is installed using winetricks.

HowTo / Notes

How to fix the redraw issue (bug #5935) for lists within mIRC.

There is a bug (#5935) in WINE, that causes mIRC not to redraw different list types correctly, when the list is contained in a mIRC MDI child, that is maximised.

The solution at this time, is to load the following mIRC script: http://code.google.com/p/winefix/source/browse/trunk/winefix.mrc

This script should not interfere with any other functions of mIRC.

Winetricks additions - riched20 and wsh56
The script editor is known to crash unless riched20 is added, it may be added via Winetricks. Some scripts may require Windows Scripting Host (wsh56), It can also be added via Winetricks.

The pasting bug (removing all content there already was) seems to have been fixed. Running Wine 1.2-rc4.
