    Apparently the author forgets XP does not support AES 256, an essential component for Skype/IE8 to work.

    Would be nice if the muppets at MS could offer an alternative to hacking the XP system files that is now necessary to fix this.

    Why is Skype dependent on IE8, anyway.

      Hi! As far as I know, in most cases Skype will work without AES 256. Anyway, if it doesn't, I found a way how to enable it even on Windows XP. If you're interested in this, please read AES-256 for Windows XP and let me know if you find it useful.

      The version of IE they use is simply bugged, it doesn't work. Try Mypal instead. :)
