Two BUGs in Pidgin Portable

 There is a bug on the setting file.
 I wanted to disable the splash screen, but when I added "DiDisableSplashScreen=true" to "Data\settings\PidginPortableSetting.ini" it doesn't work.
 Then I fount that the ini in "Source" is named "PidginPortable.ini"!
 Another bug is "PidginPortable.ini" must be put in "PidginPortable\" but "PidginPortable\Data\settings", where it was Automatically put in the latter directory.
 The two bugs took me 10 minutes, so I won't anyone else to spend time on it.
 Hope to fix soon.

Not a Bug, BY Design

It's not a bug. It's by design. All apps work that way. The file in Data\Settings is used by the launcher and should NOT be messed with by the user. No user settings are contained within it.

The file in Other\Source is an *example* INI as described in the readme.txt. To use the settings included, you must have the INI in the same directory as PidginPortable.exe. The INI settings are only intended for advanced users, which is one of the reasons it is not placed in the PidginPortable directory by default.

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