Re: Error code 2378

Skype installer relies upon VBScript, which for some reason isn't registered automatically within Windows.

 

Try below:

 

Windows 64 Bit:

 

- Click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories

 

- Right click “Command Promt” and click on “Run as administrator”

 

- Write “reg delete "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Classes\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{B54F3741-5B07-11CF-A4B0-00AA004A55E8}" /f” and hit Enter

 

- Write “cd %windir%\ syswow64” and hit Enter

 

- Write “regsvr32.exe vbscript.dll” and hit Enter

 

- You should now get a message that says: “DllRegisterServer in vbscript.dll succeeded.”

 

- Click “OK”

 

Reboot PC.

 

Run the installer again.

 

Windows 32 Bit:

 

- Click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories

 

- Right click “Command Promt” and click on “Run as administrator”

 

- Write "regsvr32 %systemroot%\system32\vbscript.dll" and hit Enter

 

- You should now get a message that says: “DllRegisterServer in vbscript.dll succeeded.”

 

- Click “OK”

 

Reboot PC.

 

Run the installer again.

Re: Error code 2378

The 2738 error is, as a rule, caused by missing or wrong vbscript.dll registration. Skype installer is in this case not able to install/uninstall the Click-to-Call add-on.

 

Go to Windows Start -> All programs -> Accessories. Right click on Command Prompt and select Run as administrator.

 

If your Windows is 32 bit then in the Command Prompt do this:

 

Type regsvr32 vbscript.dll (enter).

Type regsvr32 jscript.dll (enter).

 

If your Windows is 64 bit, then you must make sure that the command prompt shows the C:\Windows\SysWoW64\ directory. If this is not the case then type cd C:\Windows\SysWoW64 and then type the registration commands.

 

After each Enter you should receive a message saying something like: XXX.dll was successfully registered.

 

Reboot your computer.

This is how Skype looks like when I run it. Nowhere for me to login.
