Hello Richard,

As I've said to Jorge ("Masca" or "salinasv"), here we use libpurple 
with a different user interface developed using WTL (Microsoft's Windows 
Template Library).

On our customer's application all configuration files are shared with 
Pidgin (whether the user have it installed on their equipment too) 
throughout the default ".purple" folder. Considering that we don't set 
this default folder to a private and different one inside our customer's 

But for now, it's mandatory that Smiley API configuration and images 
must be on different places (I mean, that they could not be shared with 
Pidgin) so our customer's application can work without problems.
I say that because our application duplicates the info and image files 
to its internal persistence base, and this is not sincronized with 
libpurple persistence on a way to avoid problems by now.

That's why we need to point a different path to handle Smiley API from 
our application.

Anyway, this is already implemented and fully tested on Smiley API diff 
files I've provided to Jorge.

Please let me know whether you have any further questions.

Best regards,
