    Pidgin is detected by VulnDetect and the version number is also correct.
    Issue solved!

    Hmm, what now?
    On the official website there is only the installer available.
    So just skip Pidgin (Portable) and detect the nowmal version.

    I downloaded and installed Pidgin in my VM.
    Here is the data from the EXE:

    File name and path:     C:\Program Files (x86)\Pidgin\pidgin.exe
    Product Name:           Pidgin
    Internal Name:          pidgin
    Original Filename:      pidgin.exe
    
    File Description:       Pidgin
    Company:                The Pidgin developer community
    Legal Copyright:        Copyright (C) 1998-2010 The Pidgin developer community (See the COPYRIGHT file in the source distribution).

    @olli_s No, it is because of the filename: "pidgin-portable.exe"

    The other portable apps you have, they seem to be using the original filename.

    I will consider if we should alter the rule to accommodate this.

    The app is not listed in the list of apps, so maybe you have a small error?
