Please use this direct link to download the latest beta versions of skype



http://download.skype.com/msi/SkypeSetup_5.7.0.123.msi

 

i gave you the offline installer. just click on the link i have given above, and download it on your "desktop"



when you got it, double click on it (run) and start installation.



Note That: Temporary disable Antivirus/Firewall. You can reactivate your Antivirus/Firewall after downloading or installation. You may try another browser and also try resetting your browser settings.

 

Alternatively, You can download ANY versions of Skype from OldApps.com

Re: Installation: Cannot connect to the download server

Each time that I try to download Skype on another computer, I get an error message after it's done downloading saying that Skype cannot connect to the download server. Then I am given an option to try an alternate file but that does not work either. I've tried on Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Google Chrome. Is there anything else that I can do?

Re: Installation: Cannot connect to the download server

it appears even the large download app (25meg) still looks to the server to get its images - why not fix the larger download instead of muddling the code?

skype.com/go/getskype-msi installs the business version of Skype 5.5.32.124.

 

If you want to install the latest Skype Beta (5.7.0.137), then you can do this from here:

 

http://blogs.skype.com/garage/2012/01/skype_57_beta_update_for_windo.html

 

or using the msi installer:

 

http://download.skype.com/msi/SkypeSetup_5.7.0.137.msi

Re: Installation: Cannot connect to the download server

I have cut and pasted this link into my browser and have downloaded, but it says that skype cannot connect.  What do I do now?  The full version did not download, so that didn't work.
