Make sure you have Service Pack 3 and Internet Explorer 8 installed.

You can always use Windowsupdate to update your service pack 3 as it will probably pull the appropriate version for your build.  If you want to install the standalone US English XP Service pack 3 update, you can force it by using the following program I made.

 

pcdust.com/Downloads/LanguageFix/LanguageFix.exe

 

You may still have to go to "Control Panel" - "Regional and Language Options" and set the "Regional Options" and "Advanced" tabs to English if it still won't run.  Since I don't know what language you had previously, it backs up your current language preference to your desktop.

 So if you chose to do so, you can restore it later, by double clicking on the registry file it creates.  Be aware after the update you may have more English dialogs.

Re: Fatal error

Did you bother reading the solution posted in this thread and countless others?  The solution still has not changed. Nothing fancy just install Windows XP Service Pack 3 to comply with the minimum requirements of Skype.  Skype 6.7 and above will not execute properly without it.
