I am using Windows 8 x64 on a desktop.
My username and password are correct (I have changed password to be sure) but I just keep getting the "Skype can't connect" message.
I have made sure that Windows firewall allows Skype to run, also that my antivirus allows it.
Skype shows version 126.96.36.199
Behind a proxy server but it should detect that automatically as far as I know.
Thanks for any help
After over an hour i finally figured it out. I right clicked and picked compatibility for windows xp sp 3 and presto. Hope this helps.
