Re: skype 6.5.0.158

What version of Windows are you on (XP, Vista, Windows 7)? Is it 32-bit or 64-bit?

 Windows Update is reporting Skype version 6.3X as the latest available. So, when I saw this thread I thought I'd try your MSI installer link. I did get the new version installed but during the process the installer kept putting my screen in sleep mode (black) and I had to wake it up to continue through the installation steps at least three times. Also, the version actually installed is 6.5.32.158 not 6.5.0.158?

Re: skype 6.5.0.158

This msi-installer, which you have used, installs the so-called business version. The special about the business version is that in this version Facebook options are disabled and that Skype Updater Service is not installed. Otherwise, the business version is identical with the “normal” 6.5.0.158 version. The “normal” version can be installed using this msi-installer:
