Cannot log in with Windows 8.1

So I recently downloaded windows 8.1 and ever since my skype has been acting funky. When I click the tab to open it it takes me to the Merge screen although ive already merged my account and at the bottom it says im signed in. HOWEVER I cannot get past this screen.

 

If I click I have a skype account and try to sign in, it tells me that the account is already merged and that I need to log out and merge another one.

 

If I click new to skype it tells me I already have an account.

 

 

I dont know how to fix this and would love to help.

Re: Cannot log in with Windows 8.1

Same here - I guess because my Skype user name is different from my Microsoft Account user name... How can I overide either username??

Same problem. Using my non-MS login credentials Windows 8.1 just refuses to accept my valid combination of email and password. Verified by simultaniously logging in on a different Win7 PC. This is rediculous Microsoft.

I'm having the same exact problem. Wish I didn't have to merge my windows account with virtually everything.
