What exactly is the "fatal error" saying?

Do you have Service Pack 3 installed?

No, this is not correct. You can install SP3 on 32-bit Windows XP.

The last version that may work without SP3 installed is 6.6.0.106.

Download links for older Skype versions are not provided any longer.

You should look at getting the upgrade to SP3 done ( http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/help/learn-how-to-install-windows-xp-service-pack-3-sp3 )... But given that support for XP has ended I recommend upgrading to a newer Windows version now.
