Hi The original Skype in PC cannot work due to its component is missing. When the "SkypeSetup.exe" is downloaded from skype web site to PC for installation, a install window appear(please see picture), but the window is there for about one minute and then disappear. When I try install it again, the same thing happen. Anyone can give some suggestion? Thank you

are you able to right click the exe and run as Administrator to see if you can go through the installation?

It sounds like skype may have a corrupted install. Check in control panel->add/remove and see if skype is listed. If so, try uninstalling it, rebooting the computer and running the installer again. If it's not there try downloading Revo Uninstall.

It will find remnants of Skype and remove them entirely, even from the registry. See if it sees Skype installed and uninstall it that way. Then reboot and try reinstalling.


Thank you!
