I have downloaded the desktop version for windows 8. Here's what happens:
1. pop-up window asks to run SkypeSetupFull
2. I clicked: Yes
3. pop-up window asks if SkypeSetupFull is allowed to make changes to my computer
4. I clicked: Yes
5. Nothing happens...
The application can't be found and it doesn't launch for me to sign in. I only have the skype on the start up page which isn't what I need. I need to have it on my desktop for group video skyping.
Do you have any security software installed on the computer?
Please try to install with this MSI installer
I already cleared the firewall settings.
I just clicked on the MSI installer and clicked run; now is says: 0% of SkypeSetup.msi downloaded...Pause...Cancel...View downloads
I guess it's downloading...I'll let you know what happens.
Thank you for such a quick reply!
Hello. I am having a problem installing skype desktop. I download it just fine, open it and try to install and it says that the system admin has set policies to pervent this installation. I am the admin for my computer.. If you could just tell me what to do to fix it.
Do you have COMODO Programs Manager installed on the PC?
