Opening MRC files

Did your computer fail to open a MRC file? We explain what MRC files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your MRC files.

What is a MRC file?

The .mrc file extension is a script file format that is primarily associated with mIRC. mIRC is a full featured Internet Relay Chat client programs for MS Windows, which can be used to communicate, share, play or work with other Internet users in the IRC network. mIRC is applicable to either multi-user group conferences or confidential one- on- one discussions.

mIRC also features a powerful scripting language that can be utilized to automate mIRC or to create applications that perform a wide range of functions such as network communications or for playing games. mIRC uses .mrc script files that are embedded in itself to serve as source codes for relay instructions and functions. Without the .mrc files, the mIRC will not work as intended.

Specifically, .mrc files contain mIRC mechanisms that specify the action the computer has to perform, like creating dialogue windows and protecting users and channels against spam and flooding.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
