Hi,

 

I followed the instruction from here: https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA829/How-can-I-run-two-Skype-accounts-on-the-same-computer I managed to open two instaces but i have a problem with siging in. Lets say I use account A and account B, everything is working fine, both of the are starting, but if I want to use account A and account C or B and C i get the following error: Disk I/O error.

This should resolve the I/O error:

 

Make sure that Skype is actually not running on your PC (Quit or kill using Task Manager).

Go to Windows Start and in the Search/Run box type %appdata%\skype and press Enter or OK button. Go trough the whole Skype folder (including subfolders) and delete any files starting with “temp-“ or ending with “-journal” or with extension .lock.

 

The best way to have several accounts running at the same time on one computer is to start all accounts using shortcuts with the /secondary switch.
