The platform is not your biggest problem.  Your understanding of the library you
are trying to use is.

If you understood the libpurple you would know that your request is a large
undertaking.  For example meebo is a company that employs a fair number of
developers which are working full time on the task of creating a libpurple web

If you only know windows and the .NET platform I would suggest that you try
learning about how to get dll's working in .NET the MSDN and google should be
your best port of call.

The Pidgin support list is really NOT the place to get help with this kind of
development.  Also since none of the developers have answered your queries I
would suggest that none of them are interested.
