I've installed Pidgin (2.6.4) and Encryption (3.0?) on Windows 7 32 bit. I tried copying my .purple folder from my old XP install. That brought my contacts/status etc over. However, the keys didn't work. So I decided just to create a new .purple folder and then the keys would work. I copied over the files:
I've checked that there are no buddy keys in the PE configure tabs. All options are checked on the config page. When I try to IM someone with the plugin, i get:
"*** Encrypted with the Gaim-Encryption plugin "
I can't figure this out. Even if I delete the .purple folder, and let Pidgin re-create it, it's still not working. I've even had the other party delete my key and it's still not working. Help?
I had the same issue with Windows 7 64 bit and Pidgin 2.6.4. I downgraded to Pidgin 2.6.3 and everything worked as expected. Not sure if Win 7 or Pidgin update issue.
