Full Installer File

After about 20 minutes of navigating through the Skype Web site, I finally found a FAQ page, which has a link to the current full installer.  Why cannot this be more easily found?  Why is this not a link at the download page for Windows?  

 

The existing download page for Windows provides only for downloading a stub installer, which requires an Internet connection to download the rest of the software for each installation.  We have two PCs at home.  I want to download software only once and install it twice.

Re: Full Installer File

If you're asking why Skype moves in mysterious ways I have no answer.  But just in case you're still looking for the full installer, you can download it here:

Well done G4pilut - I confirm that the link is correct. Paste it into your browser Skype: PLEASE make this easier to find. Your current system is terrible. Thanks

Re: Full Installer File

Well since Microsoft has purchased Skype, the system has become much worse.  I am trying to find an alternative ..... tried to uninstall and reinstall even that does not work,  pretty sure Microsoft is trying to find ways to make money with this, thus ruining Skype

Re: Full Installer File

Ah...sneaky Skype have now blocked this route and the link you gave simply redirects to the standard download page where you cannot access the full installer file.

Re: Full Installer File

this link still works just fine, does not re-direct to the standard download page, and gets you the full installer as it always has
