"Sorry, something went wrong. Please try again."

I tried using Skype on my laptop when I first went to college last year.
It never worked, I kept getting that same message so I got frustrated and deleted it off of my computer.

My roommate is transferring schools and we want to keep in touch. She asked why I didn't have Skype yet and so I downloaded it again.
Now I remember why I don't have Skype.

I know it's not my internet connection, I've tried to connect from three different places: the school I went to last year, my house and my school this year.

What do I need to do? I've uninstalled and reinstalled the program many times.

Download, but don’t run this installer for the latest 6.0.0.126 version.

 

http://download.skype.com/msi/SkypeSetup_6.0.0.126.msi

 

Using the procedure described here,

 

http://community.skype.com/t5/Windows/How-to-update-Skype-without-using-any-Skype-installer/m-p/7073...

 

extract the Skype.exe file from the SkypeSetup_6.0.0.126.msi file and replace your currently installed Skype.exe with this new Skype.exe file. You will be now running the Skype 6.0.0.126 version.

are you on some VPN or are you using a proxy? those might block the connection to particular addresses.

 

are you able to login with Internet Explorer here: https://login.live.com/ ?

 

try to login to MS account on same computer but with different internet connection (in work, home or netcoffee, ...)

 

its similar to topic: http://community.skype.com/t5/Windows/Cannot-Login-With-Microsoft-Account-Keep-Getting-Error-Message...

Re: "Sorry, something went wrong. Please try again."

Did you receive any error code / messages?

Have you already deleted shared.xml file?

Re: "Sorry, something went wrong. Please try again."

I tried all of that. no help.
Things started working later on in the day and are still working now. So this had to be a server issue.

Glad to hear that.

 

Not only server issue but also a local issue.
