Skype used to work on Windows 7. I upgraded to Windows 8 complete with the media package and downloaded the new version of Skype and all I have is problems.
I can text but as soon as I try to use the video option I get the message "Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart. We are collecting data etc...."
I tried everything including checking for updated drivers but the same thing happens. It crashes as soon as I select the video option. If someone contacts me, I see the video and hear the audio for a couple of seconds before it crashes.
Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance
Which version of Skype are you using?
Do you have some antivirus instaled?
Do you have Hamachi installed?
When you go to Settings->Permissions, are all the permissions set to on?
Can you please provide logs as described in this link http://dev.skype.com/support/logging and send them to kmudrovcic at hotmail.com?
