OpenCandy is not included in the latest version of mIRC.
We used OpenCandy for a few months in 2011 to see if it would help earn
some income for mIRC to support its development. OpenCandy displayed
a software recommendation during the installation of mIRC. If you
installed the recommended software, this earned mIRC some income.
Why did you partner with OpenCandy?
We partnered with OpenCandy because we liked their strong policy on user
privacy, their care in vetting recommended software, and an opt-in policy
that ensures that no unwanted software is ever installed.

What does OpenCandy look like?
You can see an example of an OpenCandy recommendation below. In this case,
OpenCandy is recommending Google Chrome, a popular web browser by Google.
If you want to try the recommended application, you can select the "Install
Google Chrome" option. Alternatively, you can select the "Do Not Install
Google Chrome" option.
You can then click the install button and mIRC will be installed as usual,
along with the recommended application if you have chosen to install it.
