    • Jafar Dhada Post author

      Hello Tarig,

      You have to download Arabic Language first in Bluestacks by going to Settings > Text and Input > Languages. Download Arabic Language from there and set it as default language. Now you will be able to type Arabic.

      I hope it helps, if you have any further queries, do comment.

        • Jafar Dhada Post author

          Hi Ruksar,

          It may be that your internet connection is slow, that is the reason of error.

          Try getting a high speed internet. That would fix the problem.

      • Munish Kumar

        actually i have an antivirus of bitdefender and bluestack is not able to install its show error while instaling that you installed bitdefender antivirus ……..is there is any other way to install whatsapp on pc…….help me please

        • Jafar Dhada Post author

          Hello Munish Kumar,

          You might try disabling your antivirus for temporary time. Or you can also try another Android Emulator called Intel App up. Let me know if it works or not.

    • Jafar Dhada Post author

      May be it is showing up because you don’t have your graphics card drivers installed. Install proper drivers and you will be able to use Whatsapp for PC. 🙂

      Thanks for visiting.

  2. Santhosh

    I tried to install Bluestack couple of times but it did not get instal as it says ‘you need mininum 2 gb physical memory’ whereas i have some 30 gb free space on my c drive. what could be the reason?

    • Jafar Dhada Post author

      Are you sure the install path you have selected is in Local Disk C only? May be the default path is used for some other drive.

      Try changing the path to the correct drive and it should work. Let us know if you have further questions.

      • praveen

        i also having same problem, all drive having space more than 2 gb….plz help

        • Jafar Dhada Post author

          Hi Praveen and Santosh,

          Actually the 2 GB memory is not for hard disk space, it means 2 GB RAM. You need 2 GB free ram in order to install Bluestacks.
