Re: install Skype on windows 7 64 bit

Please use this direct link to download the latest beta versions of skype



http://download.skype.com/msi/SkypeSetup_5.7.0.123.msi

 

i gave you the offline installer. just click on the link i have given above, and download it on your "desktop"



when you got it, double click on it (run) and start installation.

 



Note That: Temporary disable Antivirus/Firewall. You can reactivate your Antivirus/Firewall after downloading or installation. You may try another browser and also try resetting your browser settings.

 

Alternatively, You can download ANY versions of Skype from OldApps.com

Same for me.

Installation window closed during the process.

 

After clicking the skype icon on the desktop, it started to install something and then stopped again.

 

There are no older versions that can be used.

 

IE11 is openned and reporting a crash!!

More over, it asked me to close all my chrome instances???? What da...?

 

This is a real show stopper. I have no idea how did this issue passed the QA team???
