Invalid URL?

Hey I've been having trouble trying to update to version 5.9. Everytime I click on the link to the download page, it says that the URL is invalid.

 

Invalid URL

The requested URL "/af5af455910d15a37644ae9054c8161d/SkypeSetup.exe", is invalid.

Reference #9.a4610c50.1334262379.8d319c7

 

Is something wrong or is it just me? Please reply.

Full installer download is here: www.skype.com/go/getskype-full

Our engineers are working on fixing the download as we speak and the situation should improve in the next hours.

I've been having the same problem. I'm on a Mac and it won't work for me either.

Re: Invalid URL?

Yep, me too. When I click on the Upgrade For Free link or Download Skype buttons on their website, I get this:

 

Invalid URL

The requested URL "/af5af455910d15a37644ae9054c8161d/partner/trackable/259/SkypeSetup.exe", is invalid.

Reference #9.aef184ce.1334263604.148d972e

Re: Invalid URL?

Well I'm at the page where it says:

A new version of Skype is available

Get the latest version of Skype for free and enjoy great new features with our best video yet.

 

[Upgrade for Free] <-- There's the link that leads to the download page

 

When I click on it, it would show a glimpse of that download page, then within almost a second later, it would white out and show  this error message. The URL at the top would also suddenly change.

 

That's what I have been experiencing. Hope that helped

Re: Invalid URL?

This am I had a message saying my skype needed updated. So I tried, and tried again and again, and again and it just sat there and wouldn't move. 40 minutes of waiting while I was doing other things. Closed it out finally and removed it. Now I can't download skype at all. What gives people!

Re: Invalid URL?

Yeah, I have this issue too. Why are you using session IDs for a generic download? Seems kinda pointless. Also, why can't I get a full download instead of a download for and installer that then downloads the app that I was trying to download in the first place?
