Skype Install Cannot Find skypesetup_5.9.0.123.msi

Trying to install the latest Skype upgrade. When the SkypeSetup.exe file starts it installs a file Skype.msi in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Skype\{EE7257A2-39A2-4D2F-9DAC-F9F25B8AE1D8}.

 

The install then pops an error message, "A network error occurred while attempting to read from the file C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Skype\{EE7257A2-39A2-4D2F-9DAC-F9F25B8AE1D8}\skypesetup_5.9.0.123.msi"

 

What's up with that?

Answering my own question. I shut down the installer, changed the name of the file from Skype.msi to skypesetup_5.9.0.123.msi, reran installer & I am now running Skype 5.10.0.115

You may try the procedure outlined here in order to install a new version of Skype without using any installer program:

 

http://community.skype.com/t5/Windows/How-to-update-Skype-without-using-any-Skype-installer/m-p/7073...

 

Be aware that as of today, the latest Skype version is 5.10.0.115

 

http://download.skype.com/msi/SkypeSetup_5.10.0.115.msi

 

You should also be advised to make a copy of the currently installed Skype.exe file; just in the case that you will regret the update.
