A portable application can be run from a removable drive (USB flash drive, iPod, portable hard drive, etc) on any Windows computer without installation.
You will carry the program with settings on removable drive and don't modify settings on host computer.
On Vista and above turn off User Account Control (UAC) or run launcher as admin.

I can't use my add Plugins. when i unzip in PidginPortable\Data\.purple\plugins & restart nothing happends. On the website they advise for %APPDATA%\.purple\plugins.

So i can't use plugin on the portable version?

The folder you used is good.
I think your plugin is not recognized by the latest version of Pidgin.

I tried to move the included plugins from PidginPortable\App\Pidgin\plugins to PidginPortable\Data\.purple\plugins and they are recognized.

Well the versión of GTK, it´s not working with new version of Pidgin 2.14.2 (Almost in windows 7). The solution was to change to a newer version that I found (gtk + -bundle_3.6.4-20130513) and voila, it's working again. Greetings !!
