Skype will start up then shut down immediately

When I downloaded the newest version of Skype onto my Mac, operating system OS X version 10.5.8, it would open to the contacts page then shut down and an error message would appear. It does not open long enough to adjust any of the settings. I have tried to reinstall as well as uninstall and reinstall but the result is the same. Any suggustions would be great!

 

Thanks,

 

A

I am having the exact same problem.  Did you find the cause?  I, too, am using a Mac.  :sad:

Re: Skype will start up then shut down immediately

I am having a simular problem. I just got one of the new MacBook pros with the retina displays.  sometimes it works and sometimes it doesen't.  It seems to work a little better AFTER the laprop is connected to wifi or network connection to the internet.  But I am having Crashing issues about 50% to 75% of the time.  any resolution from Skype tech support would be appreciated.

Re: Skype will start up then shut down immediately

Just started having the same problem this morning, very frustrating.  Can anyone from Skype help?  Same probelm, same operating system.  Crashes before it really gets going, everytime I try to launch it.  Was even funny starting up this morning, asking for my password (never does this, I have it set up to launch on start up and keep me logged in).

 

HELP!  PLEASE!
