I'm having the exact same issue. Version 4.0.1610. Though I'm now unable to connect to our local HipChat server. I can ping the server and I can login through the web portal, just not the Windows Client.
I've tried deleting the Personal Access Token from the user profile in the web app as suggested in another post but it did not make any difference in my attempts to use the Windows Client.
