Description

during the install, I get an error message " Error Downloading the GTK+ runtime: http://pidgin.im/win32/download_redir.php?\version=2.7.0&gtk_version=2.1.6.0&dt_pkg=gtk"

I it retry and get the same error. I hit cancel and the install continues. When I try to run pidgin I get another error; "error loading pidgin.dll. error:(126) the specified module could not be found. This probably means the GTK+ can't be found"

Thanks for your help! Grant

You probably have a firewall or proxy server interfering with the download. Try going to the download page and click the link for the "offline" installer. This installer includes GTK+ instead of needing to download it separately.
