    hello..

    can i open bbm on BlueStacks?

    • http://128.199.224.11/ Raj Amal

      Currently BBM is not supported in BlueStacks.

    • Srini Vasan

      present version of bluestacks has older version of sdk. But BBM needs new version of sdk. so you cant use it on bluestacks.

  • Ezele Godsent Ife

  • Greg

    What if you don’t have a mobile at the moment? Obviously this is why I want what’s app on my pc, because I don’t have a phone to use it on… How am i supposed to pass the sms verification page

    • http://128.199.224.11/ Raj Amal

      You need a real mobile for one time SMS verification. Then you can use completely in PC.

  • sanchay

    this is what it replied every time i clicked on run! ‘the application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135). click on OK to terminate the application.’ what shud i do.??

    • Srini Vasan

      you need to install the .NET framework from:http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=17153

      • http://128.199.224.11/ Raj Amal

        Try rebooting your PC then open it again, if bluestacks still only load try to install and reinstall it, that usually fix that kind of problem.

  • Dixon James

    thax! the application works from on my pc but it failed from my phone! does it mean i cant use the application on my pc and phone at the same time by using the same mobile number?

    • Srini Vasan

      yes you can use it only one one device at a time.

      • http://darrylschoeman.com/ Darryl Schoeman

        This tutorial is great. Thank you.

        When you say only one device at a time, does that mean when my whatsapp-pc is off i can still use my whatsapp-mobile?

        Or does one device only mean that my mobile number is linked to only one device and I must either my number on my phone or my pc?

        Looking forward to your feedback.

        God bless

        • Srini Vasan

    i tried to install BlueStacks bt an error occured it displays : it require 2GB of physical memory…
    What shud i do ?

    • Srini Vasan

      First, please ensure that your PC has at least 2GB of physical memory (RAM and not HDD). For example, If your PC has 1GB of RAM, the BlueStacks installer will terminate the installation procedure.

      Please try upgrading your system’s RAM and then install Bluestacks

    My recommendation would also include Photo4Tune which is comparatively new but has got all the qualities to build user addiction. It has got a
    nice interface for photo sharing, a feature for creating events just like Facebook and not to forget about the Fire messaging options.

  • vikas
