skype 5.5.59.124 install fails on Vista 32-bit - insufficient privileges

When I used skype this evening, it auto-updated, but the update failed with an error (see atatched screenshot). The installer was run with admin privs. I've tried downloading the latest (5.5.59.124) directly and I get the same error.

Re: skype 5.5.59.124 install fails on Vista 32-bit - insufficient privileges

Help :happy: I just added Skype to my computer. It seemed ok ? But now every time I try to access Skype it does not work ? I get a message from windows that closes the program immediately ? It says I have to install the latest version of Skype which I did and still no luck. Windows still comes on with a message that it has stopped working ? I have one of the first versions of Windows Vista Home. I have no idea how to correct this problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You !

Try installing beta version 5.7.0.123.  You can download the installer here:

 

www.skype.com/go/getskype-beta

 

If that doesn't help, please start a new thread/subject of your own with as many details as possible, rather than jumping on this unrelated thread.

Thanks for the information. Not that great in using the computer. Sorry, I jumped on your thread. I thought maybe the Vista issue was related.

If you are sure about Firewall / Proxy Settings; Also try restarting your router.

 

Please use this direct link to download the latest beta versions of skype



http://download.skype.com/msi/SkypeSetup_5.7.0.123.msi

 

i gave you the offline installer. just click on the link i have given above, and download it on your "desktop"



when you got it, double click on it (run) and start installation.



Note That: Temporary disable Antivirus/Firewall. You can reactivate your Antivirus/Firewall after downloading or installation. You may try another browser and also try resetting your browser settings.

 

Alternatively, You can download ANY versions of Skype from OldApps.com
