Windows 10: Skype Wouldn't Update
Skype Wouldn't Update
I use Skype you can get from Skype.com; it's not Skype Preview that comes with Windows 10. That's junk, in my not so humble opinion.
I attempted to upgrade Skype from version 126.96.36.199, but got so far and was told "The specified account already exists." Next, I was told the upgrade failed. I tried at least four times, rebooted system, etc., but nothing worked.
I had nothing to lose, so I then uninstalled Skype and reinstalled it. Once that was done, I looked and was up to version 188.8.131.52, but I knew 184.108.40.206 was out there waiting for me. So, I checked for updates, was told there were updates to be had, so, with a very reluctant mouse, I clicked and . . .
Whew, I am now up to version 220.127.116.11!
Has this happened to anyone else, or is it something I alone have experienced?
Just thought I'd drop this here for fun. My Wife brought me her friends laptop that wouldn't boot fully into Windows. (I'm "that" guy)
Among a variety of other problems....

Not sure if this has been posted yet, but I just found out that a new update for Skype is released.
Version is 18.104.22.168 if anyone is interested.
so..last night I updated windows 10 and today, every so often skype stops responding, usually when fetching a new add to assault my eyes with, and then starts working normally again after a moment or two. so who else has observed this behavior?
I upgraded wouldn't activate, did a delete everything restore and still doesn't activate?
Last four digits are not my Windows 8.1 key?
