DMG File not recognized

I tried downloading Skype v 5.3 and Skype version 2.8 on my MacBook Pro with OS 10.6.8

 

Both times when I tried to open and install, I got a file not recognized message. 

 

Any ideas?

SAME PROBLEM!!

 

I'm trying to install skype on my step-fathers mac 10.6.8 and it keeps saying the .dmg folder is not recognized.

 

Is there a reason no-one from Skype seems to be addressing this issue?

Same problem: It downloads SkypeSetup.EXE. It is a windows file. Hope they fix this soon.
