Skype Install fails with "We are having problems connecting to the download server"

I have downloaded the small install file and also the full install file (SkypeSetupFull.exe). With each, it fails when that file begins to execute. It asks for a language, then almost immediately pops up a box that says "We are having problems connecting to the download server. To Download an alternative installer for Skype, click the download botton." It then pops up the url to download skype again.

 

I have followed each thing out to it's completion and it comes back to this. At this point, I can not get it installed.

 

OS: Windows XP SP3

 

Need suggestions.

 

Thanks,

Paul

Re: Skype Install fails with "We are having problems connecting to the download server"

try with this MSI installer
http://download.skype.com/msi/SkypeSetup.msi

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

The msi-installer links of the type SkypeSetup_X.X.X.xxx.msi are only present on the Skype download servers for a short time until a more recent version is released. The currently latest Skype version is 6.0.0.120 and the msi-link is:

 

http://download.skype.com/msi/SkypeSetup_6.0.0.120.msi

 

Also the next last version is still available, but no one knows for how long yet.

 

http://download.skype.com/msi/SkypeSetup_5.10.0.116.msi

 

Be also aware, that the download link provided by Tamim (SkypeSetup.msi) is for a very old Skype 4.0 version. It’s a mystery why this link is still available on the server.
