I'm having a problem opening up skype. I updated the program, I disconnected and reconnected the program and nothing works. I'm using windows 7 but all the information I find is for windows XP. I've used skype for a few yrs and I never had this problem. As soon as it opens, it close and prompt problem with program. I can open the homepage which tells you the features but not the page to make call.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Be sure that Compatibility Mode is not enabled (right-click on Skype shortcut icon/launcher and select Properties >> Compatibility) - for Windows 7 users only.
If you have the normal Skype version installed, please install the beta version, if you have the beta version installed please install the normal version from Skype.com, please do NOT remove the current Skype installation, install over it.
These instructions have worked for many and is the quickest thing to try to resolve issues such as this.
Also, do you have all Windows updates and updates to any hardware devices by the manufactures?
