I am running Win7 Pro 64bit and just upgraded to Pidgin 2.10.7 and get an error that libatk-1.0.0.dll is missing, preventing Pidgin from starting. I really need your help to fix this error. Thanks.
Pidgin.exe – System Error
The program can’t start because libtak-1.0-0. dll is missing from your
Computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem
Upgraded to Pidgin 2.10.7 and get an error
Pidgin's installation program during installation tries to install or update GTK+.
Sometimes it could happen that during the installation some other program that is running might be using GTK+ and due to this reason pidgin is unable to either or update install the necessary files for GTK+. While the pidgin installation completes, uses gets the error reported by you.
The solution would be to download the latest versions of GTK+ from pidgin's website and install it in your pidgin's installation folder. Once GTK+'s download is complete, all that is required is to extract the GTK archive into the installation directory of Pidgin (under a GTK folder), Pidgin will run once this is done.
Hope this solution helps you.
