Several peoples reporting BlueStacks problem while changing their whatsapp profile picture. BlueStacks error and not responding while they tried browse into gallery or WhatsApp can’t open Gallery to pick an image or picture. I my self didn’t have this error on my BlueStacks, which mean BlueStacks is running fine on my computer (Windows 7 64 Bit, 4Gb RAM).
Before continue to the temporary solution, you have to make sure that you computer really meet the requirement. This including Hardware such as RAM, hardisk space and VGA compatibility, Software and system such as SP3 for Windows XP, Windows Installer 4.5, Net framework 2.0 SP2 and must be logged on as an Administrator.

After several hours trying to find out the solution on internet, i can only find 2 possible solution to this problem that is Downgrading BlueStacks to older version or using Smileys for Chat App (thanks to Wasim Khandekar on his comment on my Video). I guess nobody wan’t to Downgrade their BlueStacks since some app are not working on older version and also this setting are not guaranty to be work as we suppose. So the the better possible solution is by using Smileys for chat. By using this app we can pick a picture without browsing into gallery. Please note that if you only want to attach media into whatsapp chat, export or share button is a better than this way. Now for the detail:
In my earlier posts, i used Astro File Manager/Browser to browse into BlueStacks files/folders, this time we going to use ES File Explorer (you can still use ASTRO File manager if you want). Assume you already run BlueStacks.

This method only a way to change profile picture Without browsing into Galley. Since some peoples reporting BlueStacks error while changing profile picture because they can’t browse into Gallery, a blank page or even not responding occur while using Gallery. Unfortunately i tried this method on my BlueStacks which has no problem on using Gallery, so i just want to tell everyone that I’m not 100% sure that this will work on everyone who has Gallery browsing problem since i can’t find a computer that has this problem near my place. But in my opinion, because basically we not using Gallery to pick a picture this should work as expected.
