an atempt to help my fellow skype users

Mike Bernard
 

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.

Take care

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.

Good luck, and let us know what they say. That's an odd problem.

Re: ? about Skype on Windows 10

Doug Lee
 

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?

Look Lino,

You may not like the idea that we’re (as you say), bitching and complaining, but you know what? if I remember correctly, It is a free country, and we do have every right to do so. We’re not all technical geeks who can just make a big switch overnight. Upgrading the software is one thing, but there was no need for Microsoft to mess up the interface. They could’ve just upgraded the software and left the interface alone. Do you have any idea as to the hassel this is going to cause people now? I wouldn’t be surprised if the number of skype users were to drop significantly due to this, and if people decide to ditch skype altogether and switch to some other voip program I can’t say I wouldn’t blame them. They may be the largest corporate giant in the country, but it still doesn’t give Microsoft the right to just take over everything. Thanks for the Info Steve. I’ll be sure to check out those links.

Well maybe so. People have been warned month in advance that this was going to happen. No I’m not expecting everybody and their grandma to keep up on tech news, but still this crap is getting old like yesterday’s crap inside of a litter box.

mike, it is new but skype 8 is most definitely more accessible today
than it was originally and you can get keystrokes, tips and hints from
