Skype Windows App on Vista Home Premium, no login window

Hi, I downloaded and installed the latest version of Skype v 5.8.0.156 on Windows Vista Home Premium SP2.  I have 2 Gig Mem on an Intel T3200 dual core processor.  When the app launches, I don't get a login page, frame, or fields for user name and password as indicated in the online instructions.  Any thoughts?

Try this:

 

Go to Windows Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Right click on Command Prompt, select 'Run as administrator'.

 

The Command Prompt window should show:

 

C:\Windows\System32>

 

If this is not the case, then in the Command Prompt type:  cd c:\windows\system32 and press Enter.

 

Type this and then press Enter:

 

regsvr32 jscript.dll

 

Next type this and press Enter:

 

regsvr32 jscript9.dll

 

After each Enter you should receive a message saying that DllRegisterServer in XXX.dll succeeded.

 

Reboot your computer.

 

Make now the test showing if your Internet Explorer can execute JavaScript.

 

Open in your Internet Explorer (no other browser but only IE) this page:

Click on the “Simply Click This Button” button and watch the response.

Re: Skype Windows App on Vista Home Premium, no login window

Please, answer first these questions:

 

What version of Windows are you on? Is it 32-bit or 64-bit?

 

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/827218

 

Go to Windows Start and in the Search box type winver.exe and then press Enter.

 

What is the version of Internet Explorer installed on your computer?

 

In Internet Explorer go to Help -> About Internet Explorer.

 

 

P.S. Please, don’t say that you are not using Internet Explorer. This is irrelevant. Skype depends on Internet Explorer.

Re: Skype Windows App on Vista Home Premium, no login window

Thanks. The response I got was a dialog box that said "Your javascript is working. Thank you."

That worked, much appreciated. Didn't think I had any issues with javascript.

Great.:(y):

 

Unfortunately, problems with Internet Explorer and JavaScript seems to be very common. There are now more than 300 threads on this forum dealing with this issue.

Ah, there goes the reason I didn't notice, I don't use IE. Again, very much appreciated.
