Come visit #icechat on freenode and it can be explained to you on how to grab the latest source code, and build it.

So the new code does not work, so I would try a different server encoding in Server Settings, and find one that works for you, there are a lot of them

I have investigated the issue further and the problem is not with Unicode but with Code Pages- some servers use Code Pages in stead of Unicode so the problem seems unworkable since since IceChat doesn't support Code Pages.

I have discovered that there is a portable version of IceChat but in my opinion it is not truly portable since it writes its data and settings to \User\AppData\Local\IceChat Networks\IceChat - is there a way to force IceChat to write data and settings in its own folder? This would be very useful for running IceChat from external flash drives on guest machines.

By the way the latest portable version of IceChat- 9.02, is behind the latest installer version- IceChat 9.03.

Regards.

The portable version comes with an info.txt file, you should have read it.
That makes it truly portable.

And IceChat is able to update itself.
