    How to run older versions of Skype for Windows
    You should use parameters /secondary /username:"Username". For more details see How to run multiple Skype accounts at the same time.

    By the way, you may consider to take a look at How to create a portable Skype for Windows (in this way I am running simultaneously two 6.1.999.130 versions + one 7.34.0.102).

    How to run older versions of Skype for Windows
    It's works for me too with skype 6.20.0.104 but i don't understand how to run more than 1 skype account. Normally i could do it but with checked “Sign me in when Skype starts” i can't. I have one skype 6.20.0.104 signed in with one of my accounts, then i write "C:\Program Files (x86)\Skype\Phone\Skype 6.20.0.104.exe"/secondary but auto log not works because i'm already logged in my account and when i try type other accouts and passwords it can't connect.

    On other laptop i wanted have skype 3.8 but it not works the same like with skype 6.20.0.104, can't connect.

    Skype versions
    Skype had several owners, but people always blamed them for something. But first of all it should be noted that Microsoft does not planned neither advertising nor premium services. As far I know when they bought Skype, at Skype Technologies already planned to include ads.

    Sure, it’s easy to say that Microsoft added ads, especially if you forgot that at least they made group calls free of charge, enabled “offline” messaging and files sharing, removed client nodes, and added Skype Translator.

    About “data collected by Microsoft” — I cannot be sure what they collect, but you should read about “targeted advertising” and how it works.

    P.S. I really do not like such conversations, because I am looking like a Microsoft’s “lawyer”. The purpose of this blog is completely different — I just want to help others to stay in touch, but do not waste my time for “nothing”. This is why I please you all: write only on the case and write only well-thought-out information; appreciate the work of others and do not let hatred cloud your judgment. Thank you.

    Only microsoft would take a great service like skype and force feed us advertising updates until its the memory hogging piece of crap it is now, it hangs and freezes but we do get animated adds, right?
    this is the cleaned up pleasant version of how I really feel. dont tell me its free, we all pay dearly with the data collected by microsoft, if you doubt me, looks at the adds designed just for you.

    Not sure, about other versions, but my test account on 6.1.999.130 still works properly (except group chats).

    How to run older versions of Skype for Windows
    Just a heads up: At least here, MS has reduced the forced-logout interval to about every 24 hours. And this happens without warning, so any unsent chat text is lost.

    Also, the "/dumpmsnp" command now shows you as logged out, even though others will not see you that way. This does mean, however, that the "offline message" feature is gone. That is, if you send a message to someone and then go offline yourself, the person won't receive the message until you go online again -- like the way it was several years ago. Not good.

    I think the party is pretty much over.
  8. Thank you very much!! It's really helpful, my Skype is working now. I only try the first solution, it's very easy!!! Thank you again!!

    How to run older versions of Skype for Windows
    Hi! I posted above a screencast: how-to-run-older-versions-of-skype-for-windows.webm. As you can see using version 6.1.999.130, I can send and receive messages without any problems. In addition, there are no “spinning circles” and it does not reset Skype settings. I do not tested version 6.21.0.104, but I suppose that it should work as well. However please note that old versions do not support group chats.

    ps. I am planning to publish tomorrow a script for creating a portable copy of any Skype version. Among other things, this will allow you to run old versions. So stay tuned.

    How to run older versions of Skype for Windows
    Unfortunately, I think you cannot use group chats on old versions because old versions “don’t understand” how cloud chats works (i.e., old versions were released before cloud chats went live). By the way, it seems to me that this is the main reason why there is no sense to keep supporting these versions.

    As I wrote, the main purpose of this article is to help users make video calls on old processors. For chatting, they can easily switch to the newer version.

    How to run older versions of Skype for Windows
    It works well regarding that I can log in again now (Im using 6.21.0.104 though) but now I a problem where I appear as offline to everyone else, and I have problem sending and receiving messages (It just shows the spinny circles)

    Sometimes the messages goes through though when someone sends me a message then all my previous messages that remained unsent goes through too, but not always.

    Also not sure if its relevant but i did not see any mention of this in the guide but after i logged in on the supported 7 version, then closed that fully and opened my 6.21.0.104 to use it had to install/fix files for a while before it could log in the first time. I am not sure if that is normal.

    How to run older versions of Skype for Windows
    Ah, I wasn't aware the .999 was unique like that. I ran through everything again with a SSE2 version of 6.21 (that's the reason I'm doing this, in order to try to keep using 6 instead of 7). However, I can't send group messages (just like I couldn't using the version that doesn't involve deleting shared and config). I am "MSNP: Connection OFFLINE" and "MSNP: Status: LoggedOut", even after /msnp24. Is there just no way to use the group messaging servers on old skype? Thanks again for helping.
  13. Nope, still looking for a solution. I gave the fix on How to run older versions of Skype for Windows this page a try, but when using that method Skype just instantly crashes. I have a help post in there as well, so we'll see if there is an answer.

    How to run older versions of Skype for Windows
    Right, I was just mainly curious about why 7.17 aside from it being the oldest version that is still officially supported, but an earlier comment mentioned that the latest version, for some reason, will not work for this purpose. Plus, it probably makes sense to use a version closest in age to 6.x.

    BTW, I'm not sure if it happens as a result of the "upgrade" or later when you run the old version again, but somewhere along the way, Skype increases your chat database size by at least 50%. That's a lot. Fortunately, it can be compacted again with the handy standalone tool SpeedyFox.

    How to run older versions of Skype for Windows
    Hi! Please note that 6.1 and 6.19 are different versions. As you noticed, I am using 6.1.999.130 as example because first of all I want to help people, which have old processors. But of course, instead of it you can use any old versions. Not sure if I understood you correctly, but 7.17.0.104 is the oldest version that is still officially supported.

    How to run older versions of Skype for Windows
    As I said, the 6.1.999.130 version was developed only for processors that do not support SSE2. As you use Windows 8.1 I am pretty sure that your processor supports SSE2. On the other hand, if you want to install and old version of Skype try to install a “regular” build (the third digit should be “zero”: XX.XX.0.XX).

    Process SkypeBrowserHost.exe
    I just removed skype completely because it made 36 of these. Renaming it didnt help as skype just "fixed it" by updating. no virus or malware detected by 7 programs run. This "feature" just ruined skype completely. If they dont remove it i will stop using it permanently. Just like everything Microsoft touches it turns to S#!В§
  24. I can't be arsed to do all this. My old version was working fine until skype stopped allowing me to sign in because it was out of date. Now I don't have skype at all. Please email me when you have a download which works.

    How to run older versions of Skype for Windows
    This finally happened here overnight, so I'm going to try this. Hopefully it still works.

    But I'm curious, why 6.19 and not 6.21?

    I can understand why 7.17--perhaps later versions don't work for this purpose for some reason.

    [Updated 23 mar 2017 at 18:49]
    OK, sorry, I see that you mentioned 6.19 for those with certain hardware, but is there any version to use 7.17 aside from it being the oldest version that's officially supported?

    How to run older versions of Skype for Windows
    I've tried running through this a few times with no success. Starting from a full uninstall, I followed all the steps and watched your video, including deleting the 2 xml files at the start and making sure to not run more than one instance of skype processes at once. I also enabled compatability mode for XP pack 3. However, Skype still crashes instantly on boot. Sometimes it even wants me to sign in on 6 after just quitting 7, autofilling the username and password fields but making me press the sign in button. I have the stay signed in option enabled. As soon as I sign in/boot, the program crashes. I'm running Win 8.1 64 bit. Any ideas? Thanks for keeping this up.
  28. Hi! I think the problem is that you did not delete the shared.xml and config.xml. Please look here for detailed instruction: How to run older versions of Skype for Windows.

    Problems with sending messages and sign-in
    I installed the new Skype update (v.7.3.0.105) and am now getting the endless blue spinning wheel.

    I looked at many other post here with people who have had this problem and did *not* find anything useful to solving it.

    #notahappycamper
    . . .
  32. I think the issue might be with some missing steps on the file and settings fiddling (full process is here: http://www.skaip.org/how-to-run-older-versions-of-skype-for-windows ) or that you need an older "new version" (that article recommends 7.17 and that's what I used to pull it off).

    How to run older versions of Skype for Windows
    Hey, tried doing this because I was finally kicked out of Skype 6.21 (the last version with a good interface and what I'm used to).

    First I backed up the original .exe as well as main.db and msn.db in a separate folder before uninstalling my current Skype and going into AppData to delete shared.xml and config.xml.

    I then ran my 6.21 installer again and tried to "Quit" it when it ran afterwards ASAP.

    I then used the installer linked here for 7.17 and it installed but now I've tried signing in a few times with both my Skype name and my Microsoft account email and it keeps saying it can't connect.

    I don't know why, isn't 7.17 not dead yet? I've heard the trick doesn't work with 7.33 so I haven't tried it with that. I don't know if I need to use a different new version between 7.17 and 7.33 or if something else is going wrong. Help would really be appreciated!

    [Updated 21 mar 2017 at 23:21]
    It turns out my issue was actually the recent sign-in problem, really bad timing...

    I now managed to sign in to 7.17, change the settings, "Quit Skype" and boot up 6.21! I was a bit worried after encountering the screen with "signing in" and "Skype is updating files. This may take some time" (or something like that) but after that it popped up successfully! It's running kind of slowly at the moment but that could be something else.

    Thank you so much for this article, you saved me from the awful new interface!

    Skype for Windows
    Please describe the problem in more detail and specify the result of /dumpmsnp command.
  40. Hello,

    By doing this I'm able to sign in to 6.18, but immediately the "Skype has encountered a problem and needs to close" window appears, with the "Send error report" and "Don't send" choices. Clicking "Don't send" immediately closes Skype. I can move the error window to the side, and I can see that Skype loads up correctly with my contacts and I CAN see who is online and receive the messages that I'd missed while offline - which, to me, indicates that it is working fine - but after about 5 seconds, it forcibly closes (probably due to the "encountered a problem" window thing), even if I never clicked "Don't send" or did anything.

    Any way to fix this error window closing the old version? I'd like to use any version before 7+. I don't like the new versions, and I find it disrespectful to the user to be given no choice about upgrading.

    Skype 7.33.0.105 for Windows
    Cheers for the news and the access link for download, it worked a treat, only problem is the sounds are used at a higher bit rate for customisation notifications, so I had to convert my sounds into 16 vits as a pose to 8 bit.....
  50. Explain why before Skype was bought by Microsoft did it work on Apple, Linux, Android, Apple IOS, Sun?...... Internet explorer is not on those systems!
    Just like the recent silly update, meaning that it will not work after 1st March 2017 unless it is version 7.20. I have updated, worked OK for 3 weeks now it won't even connect, yet all other internet apps (TeamViewer - with sound and video), Viber desktop....all work fine.
    I don't use Internet Explorer as besides Firefox, its the worst browser on earth. The only way it is good is centrally managed on a domain. But then administrators deploy Skype using the full offline installer and that also fails if IE11 is not up to date. Ridiculous. If it wasn't for the fact I have to use Skype to talk to certain contacts, it would be binned.

    Functions gradually started working over the period of a few hours - everything now works. The only change I made was to uncheck "automatically detect settings" in LAN Settings in Internet Options.

    Although I suspect this was a lapse in service from Skype server side (rather than anything on my client side), since I had the same experience from two different devices on two different networks.

    About your question, look here How to run multiple Skype accounts at the same time?. If you need to run these accounts under 6.1.999.130, replace “Skype.exe” with “Skype_6.1.999.130.exe”.

    Hi! Since you are using Windows 10, your processor for sure supports SSE2 and there is no sense to use the 6.1.999.130 version. Anyway, if you want to run it under your system, right-click on the Skype_6.1.999.130 shortcut, choose “Properties”, go to the “Compatibility” tab and enable the “Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows XP (Service Pack 3)” option.

    As I indicated, first of all you need to uninstall current Skype version from Control Panel. But as regular uninstall do not remove files from %appdata%, you need to remove shared.xml and config.xml manually.

    You can ask here about Clownfish, but please note that I don’t use it and it is possible that I will not be able to help you.

    Skype versions
    Hi! Please note that versions older than 7.17 are not supported anymore. I am not sure that I understood you correctly about “Local Time feature”, but what exactly do you need: to see local user time or time when he/she sent the message?

    Skype versions
    Hi,
    which version supports the Local Time feature, next to the persons name in a chat window? I've tried to roll back to both versions of 6.21, but so far have been unable to get the time of my contact to show. I had to replace my old computer, and Skype came pre-installed.

    Check access to Skype
    Hi.

    After running the "Check access to Skype" I get one flag which is:
    "Computer too long connects to the server"

    Nothing wrong with the speed of my Internet.
    I have closed all programs that actively use the Internet connection and repeated the test.
    Same result.
    What to do next?

    The reason for attempting to do this check is that I'm having problems connecting to the Skype Download Server. Unable to install Skype for Windows 7 on my laptop.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Skype 7.33.0.104 for Windows
    Hi! First, be sure that you have installed the 7.33.0.104 version. Next, during a call click “Call” in Skype menu bar and choose the “Share System Sound” option. If you do not have this option, it means that the “wave of updates” has not reached you and will have to wait a little. As a temporary workaround, you may consider to disable the NGC audio codec.

    Skype 7.33.0.104 for Windows
    Please note that today there was a problem with authorization (Skype do not sign-in Microsoft accounts). Maybe that's why you could not connect?

    Anyway, the 7.33.0.104 works perfectly on my Windows 10 virtual machine. But if you still encounter this issue, check access to Skype using Internet Explorer and provide URL of the report.

    Hi! This is just a minor release that fixes two crashes during calls. So, if it works in 7.25.0.103 should works in 7.25.0.106 too.
