I can't open the setup.exe in my computer

I tried to run the downloaded setup file, but it keeps giving me the error pop up saying 'Skypesetup.exe is not a valid Win32 application' Is it because my computer is 64 bit?

What should I do? I need to set up the Skype ASAP.

Help me

Re: I can't open the setup.exe in my computer

The downside to posting an .msi link is that they become obsolute fairly quickly.

 

Try this link for the full installer:

 

http://www.skype.com/go/getskype-full

 

or this one, which is current as of when I'm making this post:

 

http://download.skype.com/msi/SkypeSetup_6.0.0.126.msi

Re: I can't open the setup.exe in my computer

What vesion of Windows are you running?  XP? Vista? Win7/8?

 

What results do you get when you try the installer from either link I posted earlier?  What actually happens?

Re: I can't open the setup.exe in my computer

for this link http://www.skype.com/go/getskype-full , the same error, it wont open even if its 0 seconds left already...and for this one http://download.skype.com/msi/SkypeSetup_6.0.0.126.msi,, it stucks up to 0.5/19.2 MB then it interrupts..I am using windows 7. Ive been trying to download last night, until now it isnt successful. Is there a way that you can remotely access my laptop and download on my behalf? only if its possible..thank you

Re: I can't open the setup.exe in my computer

No, there's no way I can remotely access your laptop.

 

What anti-virus / firewall program are you running?

 

Have you tried to download the http://www.skype.com/go/getskype-full link using "save" instead of run to see if you can save the installer to your hard drive?
