Skype.exe - Entry Point Not Found

[ Edited ]

When I updated Skype on my WinXP notebook just recently, each time I start Skype I get following pop up message:

 

"The procedure entry point NtalpcSendWaitReceivePort could not be located in the dynamic link library ntdll.dll."

I hit on OK and all seems fine.

But this message must indicate something's wrong.

 

How can I get rid off it?

 

Thnx.

The problem is not with Skype but with the Kies software for Samsung phones installed on your computer. See this:

Re: Skype.exe - Entry Point Not Found

Will try...I assume it has to be done in Safe mode?

Tried now and got following message:

 

"Cannot rename avrt"

Re: Skype.exe - Entry Point Not Found

In any case you must be loggod in as Administrator. Try first to close any programs running on your computer. If this doesn't help, then restart in "Safe mode".

Re: Skype.exe - Entry Point Not Found

Well, I couldn't start in safe mode without administrator username and password.

So, I had to reject this option :sad:

Re: Skype.exe - Entry Point Not Found

Well, most probably Kies software is causing this behaviour...but I can't rename 'avrt.dll' file since I don't administrator privileges.

Re: Skype.exe - Entry Point Not Found

Samsung today issued an update for their KIES software to version 2.3.2.12704_13 that fixes this incompatibility. KIES should be automatically updated when starting it.

Keep your Skype up to date
