That's odd; parts of the batch file (finding the Pidgin installation
directory and the configuration directory) are certainly not working
the way that they should be.

Which version of Windows are you using?

I've updated the pidgin.bat text at
http://developer.pidgin.im/wiki/TipsForBugReports#PreemptiveDebugLogging 
 - hopefully that should work better for you now.
