I keep getting the following message when installing skype " fatal error during installation " and on top of the small error message square it shows " Problem With Shortcut ".
I have deleted Skype and tried numerous times to reinstall but no luck.
What version of Windows are you on (XP, Vista, Windows 7)? Is it 32-bit or 64-bit?
try this FixIT
Try to start your Windows, in "Safe mode with networking".
- Repeatedly press F8 during boot.
Download, unzip and run SafeMSI
then, Install Skype with this link:
go to Skype folder inside program files and go to phone folder and then right click on Skype application and select send to Desktop (Create shortcut)
Re-run skype using this new shortcut.
Try removing the Skype program entries using Windows Installer CleanUp Utility (msicuu2.exe), perform all the steps with Admin rights...
msicuu2.exe Download Link:
Now try installing Skype with ADMIN rights.
