I tried to connect to whatsapp via Pidgin using this guide; I did not used the portable version. After following each step, I got everything running, but I get the error "Lost connection with server (out cb): Bad file descriptor". I googled it, but couldn't find a satisfying answer because none of the found solutions did help.

I know it is a common error, but like I said, i was not able to fix it. Could somebody please help? Thanks in advance!

(Windows 7, 64 bit)

From this link, try to download the latest dll. Current whatsapp version and the dll we use should be compatible.

Here is the latest dll

Thanks! I did that, but that didn't solve the problem. I keep getting the same error. – Electric Red Oct 12 '14 at 21:49
