Step 1: Download and Install mIRC

    A download window should appear, similar to the one below. You should click the Run or Open button.




    Once the download has completed, the mIRC installer will appear. You should follow the steps in the installer and install mIRC.

    Step 2: Start mIRC

    Start mIRC by selecting double-clicking the mIRC-icon on your desktop. You will get a notification about your mIRC-evaluation period. After 30 days, you need to wait 30 seconds before the Continue button becomes clickable. There are no other disadvantages from using the evaluation-version.
    Click on Continue untill the evaluation-screen closes.




    Step 3: Open Options

    If it's the first time you start mIRC, the options-window will open. If it doesn't open, press Tools >> Options or press ALT+O.



    Step 4: Enter your details

    Fill in the 4 text fields on the main Options-page.

    Nickname: This is your main nickname that will be used when you connect to IRC.
    Alternative: This is an alternative nickname. It will be used when your main nickname is already taken. This MUST be different from your main nickname!

    Note: If you are using mIRC 7, the fields for Full Name and Email Address are below Nickname and Alternative. In mIRC 7, it is also no longer required to fill in Full Name and Email Address. If left blank, default values will be used.


    Step 5: Add a new server

    On the left side of the Options-window, press Options >> Servers (1.). Next press Add on the right side of newly opened page (2.).

    Select the newly added server (1.) and press the Select-button (2.).
