Pidgin is built only as a 32-bit application on Windows.  Windows will
run it properly as long as all dependencies are installed, though most
(read: all required) of them come with Pidgin's main installer.  The
lack of a 64-bit release is due to the facts that most dependencies do
not exist or are not trivially compiled for 64-bit operating systems, we
have no developers using 64-bit Windows machines, and there is really no
reason not to just run the 32-bit binaries.
