Re: Link needs to be opened with a application

Before trying to isolate an issue, it's always best that one is running the latest Skype release. Which may in itself resolve the issue.


A new version has just been released September 1, 2011:

Please download/install this version from here, when prompted click the open or run button:


This new version is to check what version you have, using the main Skype client window please do:
