Skype 6.3 won't run past login

Hi all New to the community, apologies if this has been raised before but I've had a look and so far gotten nowhere. My problem is I've recently tried to upgrade to Skype 6.3. The update seemed to be successful however, since updating to it, whenever I login to Skype, it loads for about 2 seconds, but then crashes with the message "Skype has stopped working". I tried cleanly re-installing Skype and got as far as I did when I just updated it over 6.2. I also tried removing my Graphics Driver to see if that fixes the problem, but to no avail. Can someone please provide me with a solution? Or give me a clean link to download 6.2 from now the main Skype download page is 6.3? Kind regards, DazzaRPD (P.S. Using Windows 7 (64-bit), Avast v8.0.1483 and Windows Firewall)

All,

Just to clarify something:

I experienced the issue of not being able to log in with a Microsoft account on Skype version 6.3.0.105, which is the reason this topic was opened by me.

Since then, Skype have released a beta which is version 6.5,0.107. Please note this is still a BETA and NOT an official release. The problem I was having is fixed in the beta

However, Skype have ALSO released an update which has fixed the problem I was experiencing. The new OFFICIAL RELEASE version is 6.3.0.108 and is the version you get when downloading the Skype for Windows installer.

My issue has been fixed. If you are experiencing a different issue, may be best to open a new thread. I have not seen a mod or super user post in this topic lately.

Re: Skype 6.3 won't run past login

You can revert to the previous 6.2 version using this msi-installer:

 

http://download.skype.com/msi/SkypeSetup_6.2.0.106.msi

 

However, the Skype crash may be due to some problems with your Windows system.

 

Open Windows Event Viewer -> Custom Views -> Administrative Events. Look for any recent error messages with timestamp corresponding to Skype crash. You may copy and paste hee the text from the General tab.

I have exactly the same problem with the 6.3, as described just before.

2 seconds after it opens it crashes.

I placed back the 6.2 version .... no problems with that version.

Faulting application name: Skype.exe, version: 6.3.0.105, time stamp: 0x512fa5e2 Faulting module name: Skype.exe, version: 6.3.0.105, time stamp: 0x512fa5e2 Exception code: 0xc0000005 Fault offset: 0x00ad892d Faulting process id: 0x96c Faulting application start time: 0x01ce21af6bf28f58 Faulting application path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe Faulting module path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe Report Id: e406c848-8da2-11e2-bc94-bc5ff403f542 I have managed to get 6.2, so it's nothing too major for the time being. I am running an nVidia Graphics card with fully up-to-date drivers, and everything else provided by the manufacturer of my motherboard (and 6.2 works just fine on it, so don't see why 6.3 suddenly throws up an exception).

Re: Skype 6.3 won't run past login

I wonder if the problem exists with Internet Explorer 10 and Skype? Seeing as both programs were updated recently and Skype depends on some elements of IE?

I confirm that there are some problems with Skype 6.3.xx.xxx (ver. 6.3.59.105 and 6.3.60.105). The main window appears very late after connecting ... Please fix this bug.

I use WinXP SP3 + update daily.

Can also you login to Skype using Skype ID but not with Messenger account?

I can login with my Skype account, but cannot talk to my Messenger contacts on it. Logging with my Microsoft account makes Skype crash instantly
