Skype 6:8 download

Tried to run the latest (6.:cool:download overnight and 12 HOURS later the computer wasstill downloading. The only way to stop the process was the computer's own off switch. Anothe attempt was ruined when  the mouse was moved and the computer locked, resulting in use of the power off button. A third attempt was aborted at 30mins again with the on off button as the new Skype does not respond to cancel.

I am now trying to reinstall my last version of Skype (5:5), which is also taking an age. There could be an underlying problem: which is highly unlikely and I have my doubts anyway, as the only change in between my Skype updates was an update to ASC.

 

Does anyone else have download problems of this nature?

Re: Skype 6:8 download

The latest version at the moment is 5.8.0.158.  Try this link to download then run the full installer:  http://www.skype.com/go/getskype-full

 

If you have trouble with that one, try this one:

 

http://download.skype.com/msi/SkypeSetup_5.8.0.158.msi

 

In either case, the download should only take a few minutes max, depending on your Internet speed, and the install shouldn't take more than 5 minutes.
