Can't 'sign in' in skype running Windows 8

I everyone.

I just install skype in my PC and I have already an account in skype.

My user is correct, password is also correct but I can't sign in. It appear to

confirm my pass or user ID.

I try to create a new account, and its impossible too.

 

Can anyone help to understand what's wrong?

 

Best regards

What happens when you are trying to SIGNIN to Skype?
Did you receive any error code / messages?
Which version of Skype do you use?

Re: Can't 'sign in' in skype running Windows 8

I  can't see the version. I go to store and I install skype. I think is the latest version.

 

There's no error code. When I start it he let me choose between new user, to create an account or  to sign in if I have an older account. 

After install, he ask permeation to use camera and micro, I allow. He asked permission to run in background, I allow too. Then appears 2 options. 

The only thing he show is triangle and said "Confirm your data".

 

I search for a portable version of skype and I'm online right now.. So I exclude login (user and pass) problems..

 

Best regards

 

Thanks

Hello!

 

Under Windows 8, we experience the same problem since yesterday. But signing in is not a problem at all under Windows Vista Home Premium or Windows Phone 7.
