I use Windows XP Service Pack 3 and my mIRC is version 7.17 along with msnirc at 4.03

I go to open msninstall.mrc with mIRC and get this error

/copy: unable to copy 'C:\temp\msnirc\msn\dll\*' to 'C:\DOCUME~1\COMPAQ~1.YOU\APPLIC~1\mIRC\msn\dll\' (line 67, msninstall.mrc)

I've just tested the installer on windows 7 (I'll be able to test it on windows xp tomorrow) and it appears to be working fine.

A way for you to solve this problem would be to manually copy listfiles.dll from C:\temp\msnirc\msn\dll\ to 'C:\DOCUME~1\COMPAQ~1.YOU\APPLIC~1\mIRC\msn\dll\. You may need to create the 'dll' folder.

The installer will then not try to copy this file over, and you won't get an error.

Running mIRC as an administrator just to install the script may also help. Right click 'mIRC' in the start menu and click 'Run as administrator'.

Hopefully one of these methods will work. Please let me know if they don't work and I'll help you a bit more.

Sounds odd to me! Your autoconnects are nothing to do with MSN for mIRC - the script isn't able to even read them let alone accidently delete them!

I've just tested it on a clean mIRC on windows XP and it installed fine.

Are you using a clean mIRC, without any other scripts or addons? One of those could be interfering.

You could also try opening up msninstall.mrc from the temp folder you have extracted the files to, and deleting lines 66, 67 and 68 (the ones below). It won't run that command at all then, which won't be a problem as you've already manually copied the file over and made the dll folder yourself.

These are the lines to delete:

Code: Select all

  if ($exists($shortfn($mircdir) $+ msn\dll\listfiles.dll) == $false) {
    .copy -o " $+ $shortfn($scriptdir $+ msn\dll\*) $+ " " $+ $shortfn($mircdir) $+ msn\dll $+ "
  }

Something else that may have happened...

When you extract the zip file, you need to make sure you extract all folders that are inside the zip file. There is a folder in there called 'msn' - this may have not been extracted to your temporary folder. There are also folders inside the msn folder, these all need to be extracted too. This should happen automatically though.

If you are using the windows built-in extractor then you need to make sure you click "extract all files". If you are using any other kind of extractor then make sure you highlight all files and folders inside the zip file, and extract everything to your temporary folder. :)

It's probably quite likely that this is the cause.
