Everytime that I try to update Skype I get a failure message of: Skype was unable to install the update because the old application can’t be overwritten. How do I fix this?
OK third user with the same problem. Update downloads and then upon clicking "relaunch", this is the error message:
"Skype was unable to install the update because the old application can’t be overwritten." It's nice that you provide the Skype Community Support Network, but at some point, you need to review issues and provide solutions - not just wait on a "customer" to figure it out and reply/to help everyone else. The previous user posts are over 2 weeks old.
At the moment I've got Skype version 126.96.36.1997
I download the update but then when I try to open the file what I get to is the error message:
There is no application set to open the document “SkypeSetup_188.8.131.52.msi”.
What to do?
