The normal Skype Setup is not working with Windows 8.1.

I did a clean install of W8.1, then wanted to install "SkypeSetup.exe" but it didn't work. Windows said, its not compatible.


However, i just downloaded "SkypeSetupFull.exe" from "" and it worked.

I can login and it is not crashing.


Btw, im on Windows 8.1 RTM (not Preview version)
