Gamers.IRC and Windows 8
Using the new Windows 8 it may occur that a pure mIRC is started when you try to start Gamers.IRC. This is because – even if you installed it as admin – mIRC has no priviledges to access the Program Files folder.
This can be solved by granting mIRC administrator priviledges. In order to do that, please open the Gamers.IRC program folder (where you had installed it), right-click the file mirc.exe and choose „Properties“. A new window should appear, containing the tab „Compatibility“. At the bottom of that tab you can find the checkbox which automatically grants the needed rights to mIRC (and, thus, Gamers.IRC). After restarting mIRC the problem should be fixed.
We hope this helps you. If there are any questions, please contact us via IRC, e-mail or our board.
