How do I install the older version 5.0

I have uninstalled all Skype files as well as regedit skype files.

I can not install any of the newer versions with out the error message

"0x00401cf3 referenced memory at 0x00401cf3. The memory could not be written."

 

"Exception EAccessViolation in module Skype.exe at 00001cf3.

Access violation at address 0x00401cf3 in module Skype.exe.  Write of address 0x00401cf3."

 

I have found out that it won't install because there are no files from earlier versions found on my computer.

 

I need to install from a download as if I never had skype on my computer.

 

This problem all started when My computer updated my skype automatically and I immediateley got this message.

 

I would appreciate any help I can get.

For earlier Skype version, downloading from skype.com is more advisable.

 

Please see:

Just to clarify:

 

The link http://download.skype.com/msi/SkypeSetup_X.X.X.XXX.msi for downloading old versions from Skype is no longer working. Skype has recently removed this option. Only the currently distributed versions can be downloaded using this link.

Re: How do I install the older version 5.0

You need to update your Windows XP installation to Service Pack 3 (SP3).

Yeah, you need to update to SP3.

 

By the way, if you want an old version, I vote for 5.10.0.0019, because it's before 6.x'
