When I clicked the "make a call" link from my windows computer, I get message that "=his link needs to be opened with an application." Which application should I use?

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: http://download.skype.com/SkypeSetup.exe

 

This new version is 5.5.0.115 to check what version you have, using the main Skype client window please do:
