Pidgin: Error loading gaim.dll

Submitted by Abecedarian on December 14, 2005 - 11:48am

For some time I've been using Portable Gaim on my External HD as well as locally on my permanent desktop. I've never had any problems with it.

Today I downloaded the newest version, Portable Gaim 1.5 Beta 2. I tried both using WinRar to "Extract Here" as well as opening the zipped package in Winzip and copy-pasting as suggested on the support page ( to 'install' Portable Gaim to my local computer. I also tried copying it onto my External Hard Drive. I tried all these steps without having first copied my old profile in so that the above steps were more of a clean install (of course, the same problem also occurs if I do copy them).

FileZilla: Why?

Submitted by Oldiesmann on December 9, 2005 - 11:33am

I'm just wondering why there's a need for a "portable" version of FileZilla. Filezilla is already pretty portable by itself since you can store the settings in an XML file. The only thing that isn't real portable is the ability to specify which directory to start in (since the drive letter might be different on each PC)... I'm perfectly happy with a regular version of FileZilla on my USB drive.
