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).
