Ah, glad you got it working. They fixed some mac bugs as well, and I'm really digging (tech term here) this version now.

Hey Stephen, no, really he asked it via Twitter. I sometimes point my browser at www.twitter.com/dlee_code and so I can see his recent tweets. There are two of them written last monday I think, asking for test of his new beta scripts for Skype electron.

Thanks Doug.

I've installed those scripts with Jaws 2019 and they do solve the problems I was experiencing. The only thing of note is that my custom modifier key didn't carry through and I had to reset it, but that's easy enough to do.

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?

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

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.
