This is a known issue.

  - Go to pidgin.im
  - click "DOWNLOAD" at the top of the page menu.
  - click "Windows" in the left menu
  - click the "Download Pidgin - 2.7.0 for Windows" link in the centre of the page

That URL is
you can click it here in the mail too (generally you should not click links
in email messages you get from strrangers;-)  ).

Run that installer and you should be all set.
