My skyp keeps crashing and restarting itself for windows 8 so it just keeps going around in a circle.
I downloaded the app from the app store for free.
I get two diffrent error messages in the event viewer everytime it restarts it self.
App Microsoft.SkypeApp_kzf8qxf38zg5c!App did not launch within its allotted time.
I am running
Intell 2600K 3.4 GHz
8GB DDR3 Ram
Vertex 3 SSD
Western digital 500GB black
GTX 560ti Nvidea
Windows 8 Pro
try installing the Windows 8 Media Pack
I cannot install windows 8 media pack because i contain this error message
"This update is not compatable with you computer"
i am runing a 64bit operating system.
download the 64-bit version of media pack and run the installer with ADMIN rights (Run as administrator...)
try this TWO FixIT

Kindly go to the "Microsoft Store" and download skype for windows 8 from there. It worked well for me after all the hell of trouble i went through.
Are you sure that it was downloaded from the Microsoft Store? If so, then am sorry i would not know the problem. I tried all ideas in forums and finally thought of using the "Store app" and it worked well.
