We’ve released a hotfix to Skype 4.0 for Windows.
This update resolves the problem in the previous release of Skype 4.0 (126.96.36.199) which prevented the Skype Extras Manager from being installed .
We recommend that everyone upgrades to the new build.
I downloaded the file and it still shows ver. 188.8.131.52
I tried downloading it from the website, then from the link posted above by Raul.
Still, on Skype website it says ver. 184.108.40.206 !!
So, which is which ?!?
My 220.127.116.11 client doesn’t show an update available when I check in the Help menu.
I downloaded the latest based on the above march 18 posting / link. I am still getting 1603 error when I try to install it. I am using vista premium with service pack 1.
I have no skype on my computer. I cannot use older versions, I cannot install the newer version.
i downloaded the last ver. 18.104.22.168 (hebrew) and lost all my contacts.
when i tried to add them again it was said that the contact is allready in the list allthout i can’t see any of them.
Have downloaded the latest updated and video is still greyed out
still it does not solve the problem. the extras menu is inactive.
I downloaded the ver 22.214.171.124 and installed in my computer. When I connected with the friends of mine, they can receive my vedio and audio. I received their audio and can see my local vedio, but can’t see my friend’s vedio. I tried the ver 126.96.36.199 and it does the same thing. I even can’t uninstall it because window uninstaller complained that can’t open the registry. Please help.

Even this version works with Windows 2008 server, I have written to support, sent the screens of error, but I have not yet received any reply
Hi I upgraded to the latest version of Skype on windows vista last night. Previous version was working fine – now it won’t allow me to connect. When I try and connect and go online the little disk keeps turning and turning and nothing happens. No error message but eventually it tells me that I am not connected and I must check my internet connection, even though I am connected and on line. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
just tried to unistall 188.8.131.52 out of programs and features keeps saying error 20 what does it mean?version 4.0 wont run either all i get is spinning disks help.
I have removed the old version and now get a CANNOT REMOVE VERSION 4.0 ERROR MESSAGE 1603 whewn I try to load the latest version. I see lots of questions that relate to similar issues but saw no solution in the FAQs
Appreciate your thoughts on this
Hey I am having a huge problem with Skype right now. This may have already come up in earlier posts but Whenever I try to launch Skype 4, Skype shuts down and says “Skype has stopped working.” I can’t figure out what I am running that might be making Skype fail. I have downloaded almost every update that has been available but to no avail. I am running Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit. Any info would be great. Thanks.
It seems to me the problem with 4.0 has NOT been resolved. I get access error messages and now unable to use Skype at all because it won;t even open. I have downloaded and installed the new version given by Raul (above) but NOTHING works. This is very frustrating. Can someone really help, please? Thanks
