How to input Chinese characters in MIRC v6.03 (Eng Winxp OS)

Recommended Posts

Guest xray

Hi :D

Could someone enlighten me on the correct way of using microsoft Pinyin IME 3.0 to input chinese characters in MIRC v6.03. I am running English winxp OS with installed PRC chinese. Although I am able to read chinese websites and input chinese characters using the IME in Internet Explorer and MS Word, I am unable to launch the IME when running MIRC.

Thanks in advance.

Well, not every program handles IME integration very well...I've had problems with other programs doing this. AIM does NOT work with IME well at all...

As an alternative, you may try Yahoo! Instant Messenger. I use it all the time. It's fully-compatible with the Windows XP IME, and it's got lots of Chinese chat rooms from the mainland, Hong Kong, and Taiwan among others. Plus, it's got voice capability, which is always a good thing for learning languages better.

I hope this helps.
