No Option to sign in with Microsoft account

When I run skype and the login box comes up, there is no option to sign in with a microsoft account or facebook.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled, but still no luck.

Go to Windows Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt.

 

Type the following in the Command Prompt window and then press Enter:

 

regsvr32  jscript.dll

 

You should receive a message saying DllRegisterServer in jscript.dll succeeded.

 

Reboot your computer.

 

In order to test if your Internet Explorer is able to execute JavaScript, do the following test:

 

Open in your Internet Explorer (no other browser but only IE) this page:

Click on the “Simply Click This Button” button and watch the response.

Re: No Option to sign in with Microsoft account

Ok that did not work.  I am running windows XP SP3, and I have followed all these different solutions, but I still cannot get the new login box to show up with options to sign in with a microsoft account or facebook.

What is the version of Internet Explorer installed on your computer?

 

In Internet Explorer go to Help -> About Internet Explorer.

Re: No Option to sign in with Microsoft account

This solved my problem, thanks!! :bigsmile:

 

My problem:

Skype log on screen no longer shows option to log on with Microsoft Account credentials.

 

My steps (Win 7 - 64 bit) with Skype v6.10.73.104:

C:\Windows\System32>cd C:\Windows\SysWOW64
C:\Windows\SysWOW64>regsvr32 jscript.dll

Reboot and Restart Skype.

--> The log on option for Microsoft Account credentials now appears when Skype is opened.

What version of Windows are you on (XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 )? Is it 32-bit or 64-bit?

What is the version of Internet Explorer installed on your computer?

 

In Internet Explorer go to Help -> About Internet Explorer.

 

P.S. Please, don’t say that you are not using Internet Explorer. This is irrelevant. Skype depends on Internet Explorer.
