Pidgin Portable 2.3.1 Pre-Release 1 (Testers Needed for Friday Release)

This pre-release has been replaced by Pidgin Portable 2.4.0 Final:
https://portableapps.com/news/2008-02-29_-_pidgin_portable_2.4.0

Thanks to all who helped test.

I've posted a pre-release of Pidgin Portable 2.3.1 for folks to try out. In this new release, Pidgin has been updated to 2.3.1 (of course), we're now using Pidgin's recommended method of making it portable, the installer has been updated to the new one used by GIMP Portable, GTKLegacy still works (for Windows 9x), CommonFiles\GTK should still work in most instances, etc. The installer will update an existing instance of Pidgin Portable, of course.

Download Pidgin Portable 2.3.1 Pre-Release 1 [11.8MB download / 9.6-51.2MB installed]
(may take a few minutes to become available)

Please put this through its paces as usual. I'm hoping to post the final release later today (Thursday).

We really need folks to test who have had issues with Pidgin Portable in the past... especially the Error loading pidgin.dll bug.

Thanks,
John

Friday Release

I'm delaying the release from today til tomorrow due to lack of beta testers. Hopefully enough people will try this out by tomorrow so this can be released.

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

No problems on both accounts

I did a update on my flash drive and a clean install on the hard drive and both worked fine. No problems, and nothing left behind. Like magic as usual good job!!!

No problems.

No problems here. Nothing left behind, works great, flawless installation over the previous version. It's ready for prime time.

Think I am getting a

Think I am getting a conflict with Filezilla and XAMMP

When Pidgin is running Filezilla wont start and I found (on one occasion) XAMMP would not launch Apache from the control panel - Both scenarios I was getting a Windows error sound but no dialogues and both came good after closing Pidgin

Checked ports for a port conflict but port 80 was still free

Looking good. 2.3 cleared up

Looking good.
2.3 cleared up one issue I was having. Now let's see if it can clear up another . . .
