Account::DB_IO_ERROR

I could not access my Skype account in my iMac computer. The message I get is "Account::bigsmile:B_IO_ERROR." I do not have this problem if I use my iPad, my iPhone, or my Macbook. I wonder why is this is so? Could someone kindly help me troubleshoot this problem? Thanks.

Re: Account::DB_IO_ERROR

Same problem for me too. I can't use Skype on my MacBook Pro. I wish Skype would answer this question.

Re: Account::DB_IO_ERROR

It looks Skype control files in your Mac are damaged.

Removing them and reinstalling Skype usually works fine.

If locating these files are a problem to you just use a free app like appCleaner to remove Skype and every Skype control file and reinstal Skype.

Good luck

Re: Account::DB_IO_ERROR

hi there,

 

the skype on my mac came up with this very same thing -- & i think it was in response to having being looged in on my iPhone at the same time. i could usually access my a/c from 2 locations previously but it seemed to stuff up this time.

 

Try "Quitting" the Skype app, then re-opening it under applications & looging in again...

 

Fixed the problem for me :happy:
