Hi, I have some issues to login skype using my Windows Live Messenger Account. Please Help
I was upgraded from Windows Live Messenger to Skype on 12th March by continue using the Windows Live Messenger account. The first time login ask me some questions like merging the skype accoung with Windows Live Messenger account, and receiving the lastest product information. After I've done the first time login, I could login and have some chat with my friends. Then two days later (I didn't on the skype in any devices in the meantime), this is my second time login skype, after I typed in the Windows Live Messenger Email and Password, it pops up the first time login form to me again, I thought it was nothing then fill in the information like what I did the first time again and try to login. But this time skype shows a message "Sorry, something went wrong. Please try again.". I tried few times but the same message popped out. I was also try to find solutions online and I found some people recommend to delete the share.xml inside the skype roaming data. I've tried that but it result the same issues. Also, I've tried to uninstall and install back the skype, but it doesn't help. I've been tried to login for few hours but still couldn't get in.
Besides, this case also happen in my sister account, because we are shared PC, so when I upgrade Windows Live Messenger to Skype, she also have to use skype to sign in, she also can sign in the first time, then the second time have the same issues with me.
My PC information
Windows 7 64-bits
Skype version 6.3.105

Same issue here for last 15 hours and looks like some other peoples too in that Live Messenger section. I did manage to contact customer support person and did send screenshots and errors to him as requested so now ill wait reply from customer support. Even did try 2 different Skype versions but still nothing.
I have the same problem. First i was able to login with my hotmail account but not anymore. Can't merge with my skype account. "something went wrong" message appears. If i try the same thing in my beb browser "there was an error using your microsoft account to login" message appears. Is it normal that skype automatically made my skype name starting with "livemy hotmail address)."
Hope my experience is helpful for you !

I don't know if it was this that fixed it but i uninstalled skype, removed all the skype files (hidden folders) and ran ccleaner. Make sure it deletes all the cookies and stuff. Then i logged in at skype.com with my microsoft account and it worked. I then downloaded the program and it also works. Skype already made me an account with my hotmail accounts name before the @. I guess there was a problem with that and some cookies or something i deleted. I also logged out and shut down every windows live stuff, messenger etc before cleaning.
