I'm good for now. But got a feeling it won't be long before I
can't connect either. I'm on Win 7 64bit and Skype ...? Leave it
to Microsoft t to play with things, AGAIN!

If there’s a way you can complete the scripts for Skype
8, it would be greatly appreciated.
None of us can guess how much longer we’ll have an
accessable version of skype.

um, not a fair move as skype for mac, at least for me and
skype 8, it's very hard to use and not like what skype 4
was. It is a horable interface and I'm not sure why they
decided to go the way they did in terms of the interface.
Bad move on skype's part.

I've just been told
by Skype support that this is a deliberate move by
Microsoft. They're stopping people from accessing
Skype on the old 7.x desktop versions, in order to
push everyone onto the 8.x and/or Win10 app
By the looks of
things you'll be ok as long as you don't log out
and/or try to reinstall Skype. For the time being at
least. No idea how long it'll be before even that is

Skype 7.4 won't connect. The default installer
wouldn't work so I had to download the offline
installer. That installed it, but now when I enter
my username and password, it just says it can't
I've completely removed Skype and reinstalled it.
I've removed 7.4 and installed 8.1 in compatibility
mode, and this lets me connect without difficulty.
I've also tried the Win10 app and this too lets me
connect ok. It's just 7.4 that won't.
Using Skype 8 and/or the Win10 app isn't something I
want to do. Any suggestions on what's happening with
7.4 gratefully received... I'm tearing my hair out.
