ive just installed windows 8.1 64bit on a computer, but skype doesnt show any login screen.

 

ive tried to install an older version of skype, but then the app just crashes.

ive tried the legacy thing, but then i cant see my messenger contacts.

Re: No login screen

Try this:

 

Go to Windows Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Right click on Command Prompt, select 'Run as administrator'.

 

In the Command Prompt type:  cd c:\windows\syswow64 and press Enter.

 

Next type this and then press Enter:

 

regsvr32  jscript.dll

 

Next type this and press Enter:

 

regsvr32  jscript9.dll

 

After each Enter you should receive a message saying that DllRegisterServer in XXX.dll succeeded.

 

Reboot your computer.

 

Make now the test showing if your Internet Explorer can execute JavaScript.

 

Open in your Internet Explorer (no other browser but only IE 32-bit version) this page:

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

Re: No login screen

Try to uninstall the currently installed version and install the 6.9.0.106 version using this msi-installer:

 

http://download.skype.com/msi/SkypeSetup_6.9.0.106.msi

 

After installing this version, make sure to disable the Automatic updates:

 

Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Automatic updates ->Turn off automatic updates

Re: No login screen

Try to uninstall the 6.9 version using Control Panel Programs & Features and then install the 6.11 version.
