An error occurred on the server, due to which the users cannot log in on Skype for Windows XP. Trying to sign in to Skype, a blank white screen appears, or the loading circle is constantly spinning. Apparently, authorization through Facebook is working properly. Also, users who have enabled automatic authorization do not experience any problems (although the Skype Home page is unavailable). On the official website developers said that they knew about the bug and were working on fixing it.
Number of users confirming this error: ???
If you cannot log in via Facebook, as a workaround, use Skype for browser (though, under Windows XP only chat works, but you cannot make calls).
Thanks to our reader, I learned about one solution — you need to create a shortcut and prescribe the following path: "C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe" /username:skype_login /password:skype_password
