This is an error window I get when running Skype. I have tried reinstall/compete uninstall, deleting temp files, ... Nothing helps. The machine is Windows 7 64bit, and has some Microsoft development tools installed. Any advice?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Make sure that your Windows is not set to run in Debug mode. Open System Configuration (msconfig.exe). Click on the Boot tab and then on the “Advanced options” button. No debug options should be selected.
I just found what the problem is. I am developing a DirectShow capture filter that is acting as a capture device, and when the filter debug build is registered it causes this error (probably due to some debug code in the filter itself). I have unregistered it and now Skype works. Thanks for your help and sorry for the inconvenience.
