  6. skype 6.3 crash on windows xp

  7. Hi,

    How can I disable Skype Home on this version. Because I want to separate conversation windows from my contact list. On earlier version we have options for that.

    Thanks a lot:)

  8. Facebook is not connecting and in the last version it sent two times the same message.

    Did this release fix the problem between v6.2 calling older version on Macs? When we upgraded to 6.2 we could no longer connect with someone using an older version on their Mac. (I need to find out the OS X version and Skype version, but I know they are on a non-Intel Mac.) We went back to Skype 6.1 on our Windows 7 machines and they work fine.
