Everytime I try to install Skype, on both windows install versions, I end up getting this message. "We are having problems connecting to the download server. To download an alternate installer for Skype, click the "Download button."
Solved! Go to Solution.
so...what is the solution? I am getting the error message. Where to go for the solution to the problem????
Please delete your IE ("Internet Explorer") browser cache, cookies and temp files and try again using a IE browser window, even if IE is not your default browser.

When I try to install Skype, I get the following message:
'Installing Skype failed: code 1618. Another Skype installation is already in progress. Complete that installation before proceeding with this install.'
But I have never tried to install Skype before! Please help. I cleared the browsing history, temporary files and caches, but still no luck.
