When i am installing skype on a Dell Latitude E6430 i get an error code 2203 followed by an error code 1603.
The installation does not finish.
Can you please help me resolve this?
As a rule, the 2203 error code indicates problems with permissions on one of the folders used by Skype installer:
You can try to make use of this “portable” installation:
or you can try this:
Download, but don’t run this installer for the currently latest 22.214.171.124 version.
Using the procedure described here,
extract the Skype.exe file from the SkypeSetup_126.96.36.199.msi file and replace your currently installed Skype.exe with this new Skype.exe file. You will be now running the Skype 188.8.131.52 version.
Try this Fixit
Restart the PC.
Then try removing the Skype program entries using Windows Installer CleanUp Utility (msicuu2.exe), perform all the steps with Admin rights...

Now try installing latest Skype with this link:
This may not work for you but it worked for me: after getting the 2203 and 1603 error codes, I returned to the Skype download page and clicked on the "Try Again" button next to the "Problem downloading?" prompt in the middle of the screen. Perhaps I was lucky but the second install worked.
