"Bot Sentry" does not install with Pidgin Portable

I am trying to install "Bot Sentry" (to block bots from sending me spam) on Pidgin Portable but it complains than Pidgin was not found, obviously the install tool does not recognize Pidgin Portable, does anyone know a workaround or another plug in to block bots that works with Pidgin Portable ?

Thanks.

7-Zip

The installer is meant for use with local Pidgin. If you open the installer with 7-Zip Portable, though, you'll find the files you need within a plugin directory. Just copy those to your PidginPortable\App\Pidgin\plugins directory and it should work.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

I confirm

That bot sentry will work. You can't use the installer, you have to extract the files, but it will work if you put the files in the right places.
