Skype 6.7 Will Not Connect

I just downloaded skype 6.7 for windows 7 and for some reason it stays on the connecting screen, never moving past it. No matter how many times I've uninstalled and reinstalled the program. If I could even just reinstall 6.6 it would probably fix the problem but I can't find a download link online that doesn't seem shady.

You can try to install the 6.6.0.106 version using this msi-installer:

However, the problem might also be with your Firewall and Antivirus software.

Re: Skype 6.7 Will Not Connect

I had this problem the past few days, finally found a forum post with the solution, the two posters before me were correct, download an older version... 6.6 didnt work for me, neither did 6.3, I had to go all the way back to 6.1

Re: Skype 6.7 Will Not Connect

Thank you for your answer.

As I answered the topic "Skype 6.7 Will Not Connect" and the information there that it's perhaps problem between Skype and antivirus pgm, that maybe gives some clue of my problem.

However, I later on succeeded to solve the problem, more or less. By reinstalling, unistalling, cleaning and reinstalling again. And then forgetting it.

Re: Skype 6.7 Will Not Connect

Closing this topic now as it relates to a meanwhile outdated Skype version. Current version is 6.10 which you can download from www.skype.com/go/download 

 

If you have connection problems on newer Skype versions please start a new topic.


Keep your Skype up to date
