Sorry for the top post, however could one of the developers create a position
statement in the FAQ regarding people that want to create Meebo clones
(especially on Windows Vista)?

We have had a few people pop up, say they have done some web development and
want to port libpurple to use on the Internet.  While I would not want to
discourage a genuine developer I feel that too many are not understanding what
they are trying to undertake, plus I have no official voice so I cannot make a

Hi All.
First of all Happy New Year.
Now about some problems: ing continnuously the
I try to create IM multi protocol messaging website (some kind of
meebo)  created completely under .NET platform. So my tools are: Windows
Vista Ultimate, .NET 3.5, VS.NET <http://VS.NET> 2008. After navigating
in the internet , searching about free (open source )multiportocol IM
library found Pidgin. But wouldn't be able to found some windows
solution for the communication layer implementation, in particular
libpurple.dll that I found (first just from setup of the Pidgin, and
after from other sources cusotm builds for Windows), by the way I'm not
able to load DLL in library, getting contiously DllNotFoundException.
Actually the path is correct, but the problem is in depedences of this
library, I guess. I found them using DependecyWalker . They are :
LIBGOBJECT-2.0-0.DLL, LIBGTHREAD-2.0-0.DLL, ZLIB1.DLL. But after the
putting the binaries in the same directory , by the way the problem is
yet there. I saw post about building the libpurple under the windows
the  VS 2008 express. My question is: is there is any solution for
windows development avoiding the need of the building original C sources
? I mean some kind  pack of the precompiled binaries .
Thank you.
