Hi guys,

For those of us who are just itching to revert back to a version of skype that we can use in a mannor that we’re used to, here’s a link to skype_7.36.0.101:

https://onedrive.live.com/?authkey=%21AMkAH7XCF9lXEIE&cid=97BE058011017508&id=97BE058011017508%2133665&parId=97BE058011017508%2111937&action=locate

All you have to do is press enter on the above link, then navigate down the page till you see a link that says: “skype_7.36.0.101.exe  ‎Jan‎ ‎16” Press enter and you should get a window that asks you if you’d like to either run or save the file. Press enter or spacebar on the save button and download it to your computer. Then locate the file and install like normal. Be sure to remove any other versions of skype you have installed prior to doing this. If you can’t download the file for some reason, contact me off list and I’ll send you a copy of the .exe file.

Mike

P.S. When you install skype 7.36, you will not be bothered by the “Update Skype Today” message, as it bypasses it automatically.

In that case go to the footer of the messages and click the link to the scripts. It had better be up to date as I remember updating something months ago.

Re: Where can I get skype version of 7.4 from?

Brian K. Lingard
 

Dear Addison & List:

You need to download & install the Skype Electron scripts written & documented by Dou Lee, website HTTPS://www.dlee.or; upon reading the documentation & installing the scripts, you will find Skype 8.37 is much more usable than you presently think.

Re: Problems in updating Skype for iPhone

Michele Barbi
 

Guys unfortunately I did not manage to report the issue so I uninstalled Skype, but not I've been told that the issue has been fixed, so I reinstalled it and it's working properly. However, I think this is an Apple servers problem. since I read on Facebook that other applications are giving the same issue.

Re: ? about Skype on Windows 10

I don't have a visual concept for this, but I do know that Skype UWP for Windows 10 is not a web-style app like Skype 8. Not sure which was being addressed by the original question.

Hello guys,
I am encountering an issue in updating Skype for iOS to version 8.38, and apparently I'm not the only one person who gets it. Basically, even if it seems that the update went through, when I go for checking updates on my iPhone it appears again Skype. I am afraid the update has been badly uploaded in the Apple servers, since the situation is also as follows:
  1. some italian friends tried to uninstall Skype app and reinstall it with no result;
  2. I tried to open the application and figured out I still have 8.37 installed.
How should I go in order to report this issue? Most of all, should I report to Apple or Skype?

My computer just upgraded itself to this lousy version 8. Whatever the hell it is. I can’t even navigate through this stupid interface. What did they do to my contact history? And where is the toolbar?  

If they keep damaging software like this, I’m likely to ditch this thing altogether and switch back to using the phone. Microsoft has ruined yet another perfectly good piece of software.
