Re: Skype installation "Fatal Error" for Windows XP

The only what you need to do in order to solve this issue is to update your Windows XP installation to Service Pack 3.

The GetLogicalProcessorInformation function was first introduced in Windows XP with Service Pack 3 and was not present on older Windows XP installations.
