Install SKYPE on 3rd computer using same account : HOW TO DO THIS?

I was forced to create a NEW account but I actually need to access the same CONTACTS as in the original account I set up long time ago.  I'm using Skype on laptop 1, iPhone and now a I would like to use it on an old laptop running XP that I'll take when vacationing rather then risk the good computer for being damaged or stolen. Creating a different ID will add confusion for my contacts when calling.

 

Any idea to solve this puzzle?

[ Edited ]

After installling skype run Skype and log in with your data.

 

Note: You will need your password to re-log on, and re-set any options from default. Also note that it will may ask you to do a new account, If so Click cancel and logged on with old cridentials, all OK.

Your solution does not address the problem of downloading a shortcut icon on the desktop.  I have this same problem and simply logging in with my old credentials does not work.  Do you have a solution that does work?
