    Hi,

    I was configuring my Dalnet account in KeePass and was attempting to use the following URL in order to start mIRC from my password entry.

    irc://irc.dalnet:7000

    The problem is that KeePass send this to explorer:

    http://irc//irc.dal.net:7000

    My guess is that there is an algorithm within KeePass that tries to be too clever for its own good. Any "keyword://URL" should be send as is to the shell (except of course for the {USERNAME}, {PASSWORD}, etc.).

    Anyone has problem with other URL?

    Best

      I've fixed this, KeePass 1.04 will support IRC URLs. It now also supports all protocols that look like "proto://URL", i.e. with a "://" delimiter.

      Best regards
      Dominik
