The solution does not work for me. I am running Windows 7 Pro on a 64-bit machine. I do not have any processes running which match those mentioned in the solution. Rebooting has no effect on this issue. I make sure that MSIM was stopped before executing SkypeSetupFull.exe. I need another solution.
After rebooting your computer try to install Skype using this msi-installer for the currently latest 18.104.22.168 version.
Unable to install skype http://download.skype.com/msi/SkypeSetup_22.214.171.124
it just disappears and does nothing else after the msi setup comes up
