What do you have to have to compile MUSHclient? I have Visual Studio 2008 Express, would that work?

Express won't work because MUSHclient uses MFC, and that is not part of the freebie stuff they distribute.

Hello, I had an unusual glitch with my desktop copy of MushClient v. 4.84, and I'd managed to narrow it down to one type of trigger, and the script (using VBScript) that it calls ( my 'pose-clipper' script)

My laptop runs Windows 7 Home Premium x64, without any issues. My desktop was also running Win 7 Home Premium x64, but it was kicking back an error upon startup:

(* well, it was until I disabled all the related triggers... something about access to "OnGagTrigger" the call for the script in my glitch'd trigger *)

It was still kicking this back the following error despite my not having anything that really could trigger it (it was triggering on a name that is not set in the trigger list, and nothing else on the line is set either...)

Trigger function "OnGagTrigger" cannot execute - scripting disabled/parse error.

I narrowed it down to that type of triggers, and the script, by disabling the triggers as a while at first, then the 'pose-clipper' ones manually - a tedious process)

I finally tried the solutiuon that worked... copy the installed MushClient directory from my laptop to my desktop (it goes into C:/Program Files (x86)/MushClient in both systems, and hey presto, the 'glitch' vanished.

So, my question becomes, was anything changed recently in the 4.84 install compared to the originally distributed one? If so, its got a glitch... I'm just glad I could salvage from my laptop...

Then again, maybe something in my desktop was preventing something from running correctly (or at least ~installing~ correctly) as the brute-force copy/paste worked. A manual look-compare saw identical files/sizes/dates... so If you changed sommat, please, swap it back?

Make sure you install somewhere you have write-access. For example in My Documents, or Documents.

MUSHclient wants to update files in its own folder. Windows UAC doesn't allow that in certain places like %ProgramFiles% or %SystemRoot%. If you want MUSHclient to run properly, you have to either not put it in a UAC protected location or run MUSHclient as Administrator.

Now I don't know what the security settings on C:\рабочий стол\ are, but try moving the MUSHclient folder to a location controlled by your user such as your user documents folder.

Also try restarting the computer. Windows could just be locking the file temporarily.
