Re: Skype not opening after upgrading to Windows 8.1

Then what's the point of the app if I can't use my camera at all? It's the main feature of Skype.

Re: Skype not opening after upgrading to Windows 8.1

How about rolling back to your old intel gfx driver if you confirmed that this is gfx driver issue by looking at your event viewer?

Re: Skype not opening after upgrading to Windows 8.1

Since the error comes from the below, this issue cannot be fixed by gfx driver that I mentioned unfortunately.  

 

Faulting module name: combase.dll, version: 6.3.9600.16408, time stamp: 0x523d3001
Exception code: 0xc000027b

 

I will recommend posting the error from event viewer that we saw in the forum, this could help us to categorize the errors we see from skype app launch after upgrade.

Re: Skype not opening after upgrading to Windows 8.1

Could you share out the event viewer log for the error you observed in skype app launch?

Re: My skype app wont start on windows 8

I am having the same problem.  I upgraded from windows 8 to 8.1, everything works but Skype and a VPN client which I reinstalled and now works.

 

I uninstalled Skype and reinstalled it and it still does not get past the blue screen with the chasing dots.

 

Um.... Really this is a Microsoft product.....

Re: Skype not opening after upgrading to Windows 8.1

Installing the Newest Drivers for my Intel gfx card  fixed the problem for me.   USe the Windows 8 Driver.    https://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&keyword=hd3000
