i don't really know much about QQ, but it is very popular in China. it
is probably the top chat program, the next one is msn. everyone online
has QQ

but it only has a chinese version, i think. so i don't know how you
people were able to get QQ in your program.

probably no one tried to use it or no one bothered to email you guys,
that is why you don't know that qq doesn't work with your program any

i suppose that you can email them directly to see if you will get any response.
