Skype works in Windows 7 but not Windows 8.
« on: 05 02 2014, 17:22:58 »
I downloaded a 64bit zip package, configured and customized everything, and running ok in Windows 7 64bit.
I copied the same folder to Windows 8 64bit and Skype is not connecting. everything else works.

What could be the problem?

blahblah, from our wiki:


Information

    SkypeKit is no longer supported by Microsoft, so no bug fixes or enhancements are to be expected. Look for SkypeClassic as a replacement (which requires Skype client to be installed).
    SkypeKit will crash on Windows 8.1. It is a crash in SkypeKit itself, and there is nothing we can do about it.

It won't work in Windows 8.1 and nothing can be done about it.
