Caught in a Login Loop

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

After happily using skype for the last few months (after moving from Messenger Live), today I rebooted my PC and got a login prompt for Skype??  unusual but hey maybe something updated i thought to myself... 

 

so...

 

If I login with my old skype account i do not see all my Messenger contacts.

 

however...

 

If i login with my Messenger login, it will not let me proceed untill I "merge" with a skype account...  when i try to merge with my skype account it says i cant it's already merged to that account!!!! 

 

I've tried every permutation of login i can see but still caught in a login loop :sad: it's driving me nuts!

 

so before I give up and delete the *bleeping* program for good.  Can anyone advise me how i can login to skype using my messenger login?

 

thanks!

Re: Caught in a Login Loop

ok, so after further testing, it seems the issue is because I was trying to login with a different messenger login to the one i had originally merged (i have a work and home one and forgot which one I was using) doh! *slaps head*
